About Us

300x250.jpgWelcome to our website!

Westmoreland Heritage is a non-profit organization focused on promoting heritage and cultural tourism in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania.

We are a county wide partnership of organizations, businesses and individuals committed to two goals; expanding cultural & heritage tourism in our area and supporting efforts to educate county residents about their remarkable history.

Based at the Westmoreland County Historical Society at Greensburg, it is a private non-profit advocacy group that sees economic potential in the development and marketing of our historical and cultural assets.  Westmoreland Heritage grew out of the Greensburg Bicentennial celebration in 1999 when community leaders decided to consider ways, in which the area's rich history could be made more understandable and appealing to both residents and visitors.  

Westmoreland Heritage collaborates but not competes with historic sites, cultural centers, historical societies, educators, businesses, local and state government officials, and the Laurel Highland Visitors Bureau.  Today, our Westmoreland Heritage Community Partners number more than forty individuals and organizations, from all areas of the county working together to stimulate interest in Westmoreland County heritage and culture and to encourage tourism to the county.
