Old Mill Village Museum, in the scenic Endless Mountains of Pennsylvania, was founded over 50 years ago to preserve the area's rich heritage. It has become a center of education and history, showcasing the crafts and artifacts of the late 18th through the early 20th centuries.
Established on donated land, buildings of historic and local interest have been moved onto the land, and others have been built to display these treasures of the past. During the Spring, Summer and Autumn seasons, the Village presents special events that bring different aspects of our history and heritage alive.
All this is made possible by the efforts of the Associate Members of Old Mill Village, a local non-profit organization of dedicated volunteers who give of their time and talents to make Old Mill Village a living, working museum, "Where Antiquity Lives".
By appointment only:
Group and individual tours of the buildings and grounds at Old Mill Village during weekdays and weekends when no events are scheduled. Two day advance notice is appreciated. To set up a tour or for more information contact Wayne Frederici at 570-499-8776 or
Right: Where did the early citizens in our area get the necessities of life such as soap before supermarkets and big chain stores? Come see our local crafts people demonstrate the way some everyday items were produced right here.
