Welcome!

Welcome to the Barrett Township Historical Society 

The society was founded On July 30, 1993.  Our mission is to promote the history of Barrett Township and the surrounding area. 

Barrett Township Jistorical Society celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2018.  We have operated the Creso Station museum since 1999, housed in the circa 1880's train station built by the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western railroad.  In 2018, we opened the Library and Research Center across the street from the station, in a building built in 1928 for the Cresco Post Office.  The Cresco Station Museum was closed during most of 2019 for a complete replacement of the floor and supporting structure.  The Weiler Family Foundation kindly leases both buildings for our use.

We are currently CLOSED for the season, but you can plan to join us in 2021.  The Cresco Station Museum is located at Route 191/390 and Sand Spring Road, Cresco, Monroe County, Pennsylvania.  The BTHS meets the third Friday of each month, and we invite you to join us!.  Please contact us for more information.
