Oley Valley Heritage Association

The Oley Valley Heritage Association is a group of people who are very proud of their heritage in the Oley Valley and share a common interest in keeping the history of the Valley alive. We welcome you to enjoy your visit by viewing historic properties and beautiful scenery from the Oley Valley, Berks County, Pennsylvania and learning what our organization is all about.


The background of the Oley Valley Heritage Association can be traced to a local water loss incident in Oley Township in October 1978. A Concerned Citizens group looking for help, applied to the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Oley Township was subsequently selected for the Trust's Rural Project in 1980-83. At the conclusion of the project, the whole township was listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the largest nomination of its kind. After the National Trust project ended, the Oley Valley Heritage Association was incorporated.

Today, the Oley Valley Heritage Association has the following Mission Statement:
