Octorara Covenanter Presbyterian Foundation

The Octorara Covenanter Presbyterian Foundation is a charitable and educational non-profit organization established in part to restore and maintain the Octorara Covenanter Presbyterian Church and its attached schoolroom as a historical site.

·         The Church is the oldest Covenanter Church in North America dating back to 1754. 

·         The schoolroom, a Presbyterian Academy, was added to the Church in 1871.

·          From 1903 to 1927 the schoolroom housed Bart Township High School.

 The building serves as a museum displaying artifacts from the Covenanter Congregation, the Middle Octorara Congregation, Bart High School and Bart Township.  The museum features details of the Covenanter radical patriot leadership prior to and including the Revolutionary War period. The desk tops from the Bart High School era are carved with vintage emblems. The exhibits provide a rich legacy to pass on to future generations.
