Make History with Us

Make History With Us and join in Erie’s downtown resurgence by becoming a member of the Hagen History Center.

Nick and Heidi Gianaris have been members for more than a year, and said it was exciting to be a part of the growth of the area in which they formerly lived.

"I'm a big history enthusiast and I really like Erie Civil War history. Strong Vincent is my alma mater," Nick said.

He added that seeing the new campus was another incentive to join the Hagen History Center after the grand reopening in 2021.
"The quality of the buildings blew us away," Nick said. "It's really a quality institution and it should help drive Erie tourism. It's on par with national museums and it's really cool to see this level of investment and be some small part of that."

Heidi agreed and said she enjoyed the social events like Gallery Night. "Those events make it exciting for me to go there," she said. "And the gift shop is super professional and well appointed.
