Kerr Memorial Museum

402 Delaware Avenue
Oakmont, PA 15139


Committed to the community throughout their lives, Dr. Kerr provided personalized medical care as a family physician and his daughter Virginia taught English in the Oakmont public schools for 42 years. Virginia Kerr never married and she lived in the family home her entire life. Upon her death in 1994, Virginia bequeathed her beloved 14 room home to the Borough of Oakmont to be used as a museum in memory of her father.

Visitors to the museum are able to tour all rooms on the home’s first and second floors, in addition to the recently restored basement. An accurate depiction of upper middle class life between 1890 - 1910, the interior of the home is both beautiful and warm, giving visitors a tangible connection to life over 100 years ago.

Owned by the Borough of Oakmont and operated by an all-volunteer staff, the Kerr Memorial Museum through its extensive collection of items from both the family and the Pittsburgh area brings to life the middle class experience in the area at the dawn of the 20th Century.
