About Us

Founded in 1996, the Homer-Center Historical Society is dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the history of Homer City and Center Township, Pennsylvania.

To that end, we own and operate a caboose museum located at 204 N Main St, Homer City PA on the Hoodlebug trail where  the PRR  station once stood.


We are a membership-based organization.  The Individual Annual  Membership fee  is only $10.00.   A Household Lifetime Membership is available for a one-time fee of $100.00.  Life-time Affiliate Business Memberships are also available at a cost of $125.00. 

Once a year, the members of the HCHS host a "Duck Race" on Yellow Creek.  The proceeds of this fundraiser enable us to continue operating our museum, offering our Jack Loughner Memorial Scholarship, and providing historic presentations.  

In 2015, we initiated our Local Hero Banner program.  Residents of Homer City and Center Township are able to purchase these 5 ft, double-sided custom banners displayed in the Homer City are.  


Commemorative bricks are available for purchase from HCHS.  The bricks are installed on our walkway at  our caboose museum in Homer City.   

For current prices, applications, and membership, see the images on this site, or call 724-549-4251 for more information
