Genealogical Research and the Centre County Library Historical Museum

The Pennsylvania Room in the Centre County Library Historical Museum has a specialized collection of more than 3,000 volumes on state, local, and family history, as well as original Centre County records, newspapers, patron-provided manuscript genealogies, vital record indexes, and database and paper indexes to Centre County marriages and newspaper obituaries.

Unique to this library is the massive Spangler Collection of data on families of central Pennsylvania, and the files of local genealogist J. Marvin Lee. The Pennsylvania Room is located in the historic 1814 Miles-Humes home, which also houses a historical museum featuring documents, photographs, family memorabilia, and other items of interest to family and local historians.
