School and Bus Tour information
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.
