The Museum

Among the fascinating exhibits are resort artifacts (from when the town was the second largest inland resort town in the United States after the Civil War), Lenape relics, Kentucky rifles, a 19th century snare drum, and land deeds dating back to 1745.

Displays include pictures of famous visitors such as President Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt and Fred Astaire. Sit in a 1930s era classroom and watch a short film on the history of the town.

Downstairs is one of the favorite art galleries in the Poconos with rotating exhibits of regional artists. A separate building has a restored 1926 American LaFrance fire engine, antique horse drawn sleighs, and early farm implements.
