The Appalachian Trail Museum located in the Old Mill at Pine Grove Furnace State Park opened in 2010 with exhibits on the history of the Appalachian Trail – its founders and early pioneer hikers. On June 4, 2016 we will open the basement level of the building as our children’s museum.
The basement level will open with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10 AM (Guest speakers: Ashley Kurtz of the Cumberland Valley Visitor Bureau, major funder of the project, and Jennifer Chambers, author of children’s books and president of the American Hiking Society.) A Children’s Festival will be held on the grounds of the museum from 11 AM to 2 PM with storytelling, games, music and food – including ‘made-to-order’ Trail Mix.
