The Commission is charged with the identification and preservation of historical assets within the Township; preserving the architectural and historical integrity of these resources so that this heritage may be appreciated and enjoyed for generations to come. In addition, the Historic Commission attempts to provide educational services to the residents of Schuylkill Township.
