History Museum
“The Pocono Indian Museum traces the history of the Delawares through displays of ancient artifacts, weapons and tools that form chronological commentary on life among the Indians for thousands of years. It is the only museum in Northeast PA dedicated to the history of the Delaware Indian. The museum will inform and, perhaps, shock you. It will show you the history of man in Northeastern PA from 10,500 BC to the contact period with European man prior to the American Revolution. It will show the Delaware Indians' peaceful coexistence with other Indians, and, it will detail the shocking and short 100 years it took European man to virtually eliminate traces of the Indians' existence. ”

Route
“The McDade trail offers hikers, bikers and cross country skiers 32 miles of uninterrupted trail with beautiful views of the Delaware River. There are several trailheads so you can easily customize your route to accommodate any distance. Elevation gain is minimal which allows for a pleasant, less technical walk. After your excursion, we recommend going for a bite to eat at Saen Thai Cuisine conveniently located right down the road.”
