SAMA capped its expansion in 1997 with a move westward into Westmoreland County. The Ligonier Valley Museum is modeled on an authentic log cabin design that reflects the historic community and is surrounded by numerous flower gardens. The Walter Carlyle Shaw Paperweight Collection is on permanent display in a custom installation that frames the exhibition gallery.
