Welcome to the History Quest Wiki!


Erie Yesterday is pleased with the results of the pilot project History Quest, a one-week summer camp in collaboration with Penn State Behrend's College for Kids program. History Quest, which took place June 13-17, 2011, targeted under-served youth ages 12 through 16 and provideed them with local history experiences designed to promote a clear understanding of the meaning of community. The week included a day sail on the U.S. Brig Niagara, a visit to the Drake Well Museum in Titusville, and a day exploring Old Fort Niagara just north of Niagara Falls, New York.
Youth could register for the camp through the College for Kids website beginning May 16, 2011. Registration for History Quest closed June 6th.
Erie Yesterday - a consortium of Erie County museums and historical societies – has a 30-year record of promoting the study and preservation of public history in our community. We believe that museums and historical societies are fundamental for a thriving community, as they enable the public to explore local history collections for inspiration, learning and enjoyment.
