The Murrysville Historical Preservation Society, Inc. was founded in April 1987 by Roger T. Weiner, Jackie Wimer, Joan Kearns, Claire Bassett, Sandra Friesel and Eric Rogers who had unsuccessfully attempted to prevent the demolition of the stately 170 year old Bossart House in Murrysville Town Square.
The mission of the Murrysville Historical Preservation Society is to promote and educate residents through the discovery, collection and documentation of historical data, as well as support the preservation and refurbishing of historical structures, monuments and landmarks in the Murrysville area.
Our intent is to provide Murrysville residents, future generations and visitors of all ages with a better understanding of our rich heritage, colonial life and unique contributions of Murrysville in the history of Western Pennsylvania and the United States.
