Welcome

Come on in and pull up a chair. Whether you are a newcomer or an old timer you can get to know us and experience our rich heritage. The Society was founded in 1957. There is so much to see and learn about the Cocalico Valley. Visit the Theodore R. Sprecher Museum housed in the Connell Mansion in it's Victorian elegance. You will find thirteen rooms of exhibits with collections from the early 1800's to present and period room settings. Be sure to see the current feature exhibit. Quite possibly you may want to do some research in the library with its wealth of local history and genealogy. Resource materials range widely from the standard body of legal and church records to the specific and unique resources focused on the Cocalico Valley. To get a glimpse of the collections you can view an online card catalog which includes files through the year 2000. Current files can be perused in the library. You have heard our story, maybe you have one too. We would love to hear from you.
