A new Art Gallery has been organized at the History House at 32 West Main Street by the Historical Society. Five artists are featured. A variety of media are used. Together their art portrays familiar scenes in the Hummelstown area starting in the early 1900’s.
Vintage photographs of the Brownstone Railroad have also been included because of their popularity during the recent All Aboard Show.

The public is invited to visit the gallery which is in the public rooms of the Society’s Library and Office. There is no charge for admission.

Please visit during the normal operating hours which are Mondays and Wednesdays from 10:00 to 4:00 PM. Or call the Society Office at 566-6314 to arrange a special appointment if that is more convenient.
