main1.jpgWelcome to Smock!!

The Smock Historical Society was formed in 1994 as a result of the nomination and placement of Smock on the National Register of Historic Places. The Society which began with 11 members, now numbers 210.

With the cooperation of the Smock Community Center, SHS has established the Smock Heritage Museum to preserve the heritage of this special coal mining community. It is located on the second floor of the Center which was formerly the HC Frick Company Store. Visitors will climb the exterior or interior stairs from the community center to the museum and enter an area that takes you back in time. There are two murals to view, maps, aerial views of the town, artifacts, antiques, photographs, books, three rooms that replicate rooms in a “Patch House”, a local “Cicconi” tavern display, wedding gown display and much much more to hold your interest. If you are interested in handmade crafts, we also have a craft shop!
