Saturday 10 - 5 pm Sunday 10 - 4 pm
Battle re-enactment each day @ 2:00 pm
Chair: Tim Button 570-434-3353
The War Between the States shaped our history and changed life for many in
our area. The Village will be filled with the soldiers' encampments. Be so close it seems like you are a part of the action. March in step
with soldiers, and be charmed by the elegantly dressed ladies. Battle
re-enactment each day.
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.
