BLUE ROCK HERITAGE CENTER

Our Center was founded in 2001 in response to a renewed desire for easier river access in the region and to better understand our past. The Center provides a home to artifacts from our recent and ancient past and provides a gathering place for those wanting to learn more about our local history and natural resources.

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to promote and conserve the rich history of the Lower Susquehanna River Valley through education, preservation, and restoration; and to increase public awareness of its archeological and historical resources, features and buildings, and their unique inter-relationship with and access to the local ecological systems.
