Visit One of Cambria’s Oldest Homes – Cambria’s Historical Museum

Built in 1870, the Guthrie-Bianchini House is one of Cambria’s oldest homes. Sitting on the corner of Burton Drive and Center Street in Cambria’s East Village, the house is now home to Cambria’s Historical Museum. It was restored by the Cambria Historical Society and opened in December 2008.

This exciting place of discovery has a rich history and has hosted over 20,000 visitors since it opened as a museum in December 2008. The museum holds regular exhibits and tours, and is a fun spot to visit during the Cambria Scarecrow/Harvest Festival every year.

The museum itself is a great place to host special events from meetings to family reunions and birthday parties. The restored Victorian home and spacious garden can accommodate many guests. For more information, e-mail
