ABOUT MCKEESPORT REGIONAL HISTORY & HERITAGE CENTER:
Founded in 1980, The McKeesport Regional History & Heritage Center is a non-profit museum and research facility dedicated to preserving and presenting the history of McKeesport and its surrounding area.

Five additional rooms display varying aspects of McKeesport and the Mon Valley's history, including an Industry Wing with a large-scale model of the US Steel National Tube, church collections, and an exhibit honoring Helen Richey.
