Historical protection: history buffs jump from one museum to another throughout northeastern Pennsylvania. You can start from the Packer mansion in Jim Thorpe, at the southern end of the Poconos, and don’t stop until you experience life on 19th-century German agriculture in Pennsylvania at Quiet Valley Historical Farm, a vital element of the coal region at Number 9 Mina or found first occupants the area in the Pocono Indian Museum. The Monroe County Historical Society holds all the local history it can handle, along with the genealogical research library. Whatever the time, the Pocono live to tell their story. This is yours to find!
