The Gratz Bank allowed the Elizabethville Area Historical to use their property at 100 E. Main St., Elizabethville since February 2015 and have covered all associated expenses since that time. They have now donated the property to the Society. It’s a very generous donation and it means so much to the Society to have a permanent home.
