Clearfield County Historical Society’s Board Meets.....
...Regrettably, but unanimously, the board agreed not to open the Alexander Research Center this year, due to the Covid-19 virus danger. It is not possible, given the size of the building and the amount of researchers from many parts of Pennsylvania and the US, who use the facility, to accommodate social distancing and to insure a twice weekly sanitizing of research materials and fixtures.
