Margaret Mason, a member of the scout council’s history committee, says the museum is a merger of three archives and materials that had been spread throughout the Girl Scouts operations in eastern Pennsylvania.

“We have some temporary exhibits, some permanent ones and we’re going to be changing them regularly in order to be of interest to the public and our Girl Scout troops,” Mason explained.

“We have a rich history here in eastern Pennsylvania,” she said. “We are a hundred years old this year so this is a culminating event of our 100th anniversary year.”
