Phone: 724-639-9003


The Saltsburg Area Historical Society acquired this old stone house, built in 1830, and established it as a well-documented museum of local history, including period furnishings, artifacts, and historical records of the surrounding region.  Expertly developed displays tell the story of the canal era, the local salt, glass, and coal industries, and about collections of pottery, Indian arrowheads, blacksmith’s tools, military items and memorabilia, and local residents who served as doctors, editors and educators, and inventors.   In the backyard of the museum is a toolshed that contains a large variety of old farming and carpentry tools.  A new feature display is developed each year for Saltsburg’s Canal Days celebration at the beginning of June.  There is also a well-maintained and labeled Victorian-style public garden, planted and tended by the Saltsburg Herbal Society, that adds an interesting and beautiful outdoor experience for museum tours.  The Stone House Museum is open every Wednesday throughout the year, except on holidays, from 10a.m. – 2p.m., on Sunday afternoons from 1p.m. – 5p.m. during the months of May through October, and other times by appointment.
