Local Educational Resources

Meadowcroft Rockshelter is an archaeological site overlooking Cross Creek (a tributary of the Ohio River) and is the oldest known Native American cultural site. A team from the University of Pittsburgh, led by James M. Adovasio excavated 19,000 year old Woodland, Archaic, and Paleoindian remains. It was given the name "Meadowcroft" from the nearby Meadowcroft Village historical park.

The Avella Area Public Library is a member of the Washington County Library system, serving the Avella Area School District, West Middletown Boro, Cross Creek, Hopewell, and Independence Townships.

The AD White Research Society is located in downtown Avella, Pennsylvania in the newly restored 1905 Avella Train Station. Named after A.D. White, a well known school superintendent, lecturer, author, genealogist, and historian, the center's primary objectives are to promote interest in regional and family history, to inspire individuals to record the genealogy of families from which they descend as well as human interest stories about the dangers and hardships they or their ancestors endured, and to provide a permanent public archive for those valuable documents.

McKeever Study Library is a public archive of historical documents and pictures dating back to as early as the 1800s. The quaint library located at 84 W. Main Street, West Middletown, PA.
