The Historic Carversville Society
Carversville sits at the confluence of the branches of the Paunacussing Creek in Solebury Township, PA.
The village is a nationally-designated historic zone.
The Historic Carversville Society, a volunteer-based non-profit group, is dedicated to the future -- and past -- of this community jewel.
The Historical Society of Pennsylvania's Hidden Collections Initiative included us in their archival Pennsylvania Small Archival Repositories. Click here for their finds, it's fascinating!
