Mission Statement

The mission of the Bradford House Historical Association is to educate as we preserve and promote the history of the Whiskey Rebellion and the 18th-century life and times of David Bradford.


The BHHA was created in 1965 to support the Bradford House Museum, a National Historic Landmark. The Association has grown leaps and bounds over the last 50+ years and has so much more to offer the public. We operate and manage the Bradford House Museum, the Whiskey Rebellion Education & Visitor Center, and the Meeting House. All three sites are steps from each other on Main Street, Washington, PA. With a mission focused on education, we are proud of our strong public programming. Audience size varies from offering to offering. The Educational Resources and Programming Committee of the Bradford House Historical Association, with the assistance of the Executive Director, is delegated the authority and responsibility to develop, implement, and monitor the organization's educational programs. The spectrum of educational programming includes but is not limited to, tours, educational field trips, enrichment activities, school outreach, adult education, lectures, and community partnerships. The purview of this committee also includes vetting programs, creating processes, and monitoring outcomes, for the allocation and distribution of educational resources. Currently, our four key annual programs include free education kits offered to local third, fourth, fifth, and sixth grades; a Hands-on History Day Camp is available to children in fourth to sixth grades; a Symposium on 18th Century Life and Customs in Western Pennsylvania for all age groups; and the Whiskey Rebellion Festival which includes the Lil' Rebel area.
