Name Change

The Ben Avon Area Historical Association (BAAHA) is changing its name to the Avonworth Historical Society, to better reflect the group’s primary areas of interest, which are the five municipalities that make up the Avonworth School District.

The society promotes local history and is a repository of documents and artifacts from the local area.

Currently the society collaborates with the Heinz History Center on an enrichment program for Avonworth eighth graders.

With the more-inclusive name, the non-profit organization hopes to attain a broader audience and increased financial support.
