The Pennsylvania Historical & Museum Commission, the commonwealth’s official history agency, invites the public to explore the state-owned historic sites along the Pennsylvania Trails of History for free on Saturday, September 24.
The Pennsylvania Trails of History comprises museums and historic sites administered by the Pennsylvania Historical & Museum Commission, organized along four theme-based “trails” crossing the commonwealth: Military History, Industrial Heritage, Historic Homes, and Rural Farm & Village. Visitors are invited to explore one or more of the trails to learn about the people, places and events that make Pennsylvania so special. Located throughout the state, the sites are only a short drive away. There’s also The State Museum of Pennsylvania for a wide variety of Pennsylvania history under one roof. This includes Landis Valley Village & Farm Museum.
Landis Valley Village & Farm Museum opens at 9:00 am and closes at 4:00 pm on 24 September. Please enter the site through the Visitor Center. You can see the new exhibit in the Visitor Center, “Pennsylvania Germans and Their Lives Through Color,” enjoy the exhibits in the village’s various buildings, and interact with crafts people and docents. Please join us on the 24th!
