ABOUT OLEY VALLEY HERITAGE ASSOCIATION
The background of the Oley Valley Heritage Association can be traced to a local water loss incident in Oley Township in October 1978. A Concerned Citizens group looking for help, applied to the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Oley Township was subsequently selected for the Trust's Rural Project in 1980-83. At the conclusion of the project, the whole township was listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the largest nomination of its kind. After the National Trust project ended, the Oley Valley Heritage Association was incorporated.
Today, the Oley Valley Heritage Association has the following Mission Statement:
The Oley Valley Heritage Association is dedicated to promoting education, publishing information and encouraging preservation of those subjects that reflect the heritage of the Oley Valley.
