Isett Heritage museum

Isett Heritage Museum is one of the most unique museums in Pennsylvania.  The museum is not on a major highway. It can be found about two miles east of Huntingdon Borough, located on Stone Creek Ridge Road. The ridge road has a spectacular aerial view of numerous surrounding mountains and ridges overlooking approximately twenty miles.  The museum buildings are nestled on beautiful fields surrounded by numerous flower beds and fruit trees, a perfect setting for Mr. Isett’s dream come true.  Mr. Melvin Isett, born in Huntingdon County in 1922, spent his entire lifetime collecting antiques and memorabilia with a dream to open a museum.  In 2001, shortly after Mr. Isett’s retirement, his private collection was opened to the public in a renovated barn on the property. In 2004 the museum expanded to include a ten thousand square foot building, and once again in 2008 another ten thousand square foot building was added. The buildings are home to a collection of over forty thousand items from Mr. Isett, his family and donations. After completing your tour, we hope you will take the time to browse through the gift shop.
