Nanty Glo Historical Society
For a community celebrating its 100th year, there’s been no better time than the present to ensure the history of the town is preserved for years to come. So when plans to purchase their railroad and mining museum property required financing, the Nanty Glo Historical Society Board found a partner in First Commonwealth.
We are a group of volunteers. No one is getting paid. We needed a bank that was willing to work on our schedule,” said Marty Sebetich, President of the Historical Society. “A lot of mortgage companies came in and demanded timelines that we just couldn’t meet. We needed a community bank.
Marty and the Board have raised a significant amount of the funds needed to finish the museum and plan to open their doors by the end of 2018. The Nanty Glo community has stepped up and provided more than $1 million toward the project goal, and frequent the Liberty Café, proceeds which also support the fundraising goal.
The centennial celebration this year will kick off on June 23 through July 8, with a full schedule of events that will bring the community together.
