The Allegheny Foothills Historical Society was formed in 1979 to preserve the history of Plum Borough, Pennsylvania. Founded in 1788, Plum was one of the original seven townships of Allegheny County. The Allegheny Foothills Historical Society operates the Carpenter Log House located on Pierson Run Road in Boyce Park. Built in 1822, the original Carpenter house was situated on property once owned by Jerimiah Murry, the founder of Murrysville, Westmoreland County, PA. The sturdy two story log house served as residence of the Murry/Carpenter family for 136 years. In 1958 the house and property were sold to Allegheny County as a part of the newly created Boyce Park. The house was dismantled and rebuilt at Point State Park for the City of Pittsburgh Bi-centennial celebration in 1958. The Allegheny Foothills Historical Society undertook the restoration of the house in 1979. The house was rebuilt on the original foundation with many of the original logs. The house's furnishings are from the 1800's and early 1900's, and include some original items from the Carpenter family. The Carpenter log house is open Sundays from May through September from 1-4pm. Tour guides provide colorful and informative dialogue and a glimpse of rural life in the early days of Plum Township. Donations are accepted.
