The Leechburg Area Museum and Historical Society is located in the David Leech House -- the oldest house in Leechburg.


This is the bronze plaque that hangs on the Main Street side of the David Leech house. It reads "The David Leech House. The oldest house in Leechburg. Leechburg Area Historical Society.

There's quite a history within this two-story building, and we invite you to experience it by means of a personal visit.

Our collection covers a wide gamut of items including era clothing, signs and other artifacts from Leechburg area businesses, Leechburg High School Minetas, sports team photos, information about local industries (Allegheny Ludlum, Schenley Distilleries), paintings, photographs, history books, a vast collection of Leechburg Advance newspapers (on microfilm), furniture, Leechburg postcards, and more.

You can pick up an old Minetas yearbook, a copy of the "It's a Leechburg Thing" cookbook, Leechburg Anniversary books, or similar items; all we ask is that you make a small donation for such items.

Upstairs, we have a large research library filled with interesting, rare and exclusive documents dating back to Leechburg's earliest existence. You can also search for information about your ancestors who were born, lived or died in Leechburg.

So, plan to visit the old hometown. Spend an afternoon in the David Leech House. Learn about Leechburg, Leechburg's past, or your own family's past. You'll be glad you did.
