    History & Heritage

    If you're into railroads, iron furnaces, or oil wells, the Pennsylvania Wilds is the place for you. One of the ways we define our region is by its extensive industrial history, and a roadtrip here means you'll get to see and experience a vigorous past. If your tastes are more general, then you're still in luck. The heritage of the Pennsylvania Wilds is evident in our architecture, institutions, and museums. A visit to any of our towns promises a wealth of interesting artifacts and structures. On these roadtrips, we've pulled together the best historic attractions along some of our most popular routes; we've also included recommendations on where to stay and eat, so all you have to do is get in the car and go!
