The Pennsylvania WoodMobile is a traveling exhibit that provides information on the state’s forest resource and the state’s forest products industry. It will be available with interactive displays all day.
Hear the history of the Irish immigrants who built the North Branch Canal and worked in the coal mining towns on Barclay Mountain and understand their contributions to the story of the mountain.
Spend the afternoon learning about the history of elk in Pennsylvania, including when we lost them, how they were reintroduced, and what the status of the Pennsylvania elk herd is now.
In addition to the main programs, there are several demonstrations and displays both outside and inside the community building next to the museum. Some of these include: Bradford County Conservation District, bark-peeling, bark boiling/hide processing and tanning, Pennsylvania Lumber Museum, Bradford County Historical Society exhibit of Barclay Mountain photos, railroad and canal history, Abandoned Pennsylvania Coal Mines featuring antique coal mining equipment, natural gas and pipeline information, Pennsylvania Game Commission, Che-Hanna Rock & Mineral Club, Susquehanna Autobahn Society, Endless Mountains Primitive Outdoorsmen, private collections, and more!
The museum will be open all day with 16 exhibits featuring the history of southwestern Bradford County including the largest collection of Laquin items available anywhere. This year we are featuring even more from the mountain! Admission to the museum is a donation to support our work.
In the gift shop, pick up Barclay Mountain history books, geological survey maps of the mountain, t-shirts, and more! The first 50 people whose ancestors lived on or worked on the mountain, or who had a cabin on the mountain can get a free limited edition Barclay Mountain Heritage Day button to wear, signifying that their family is connected to the history of the mountain.

The first 50 people who visit the museum gift shop and provide information about their ancestor who lived or worked on the mountain in any way will be eligible to receive a free limited-edition button to wear during the day signifying that you are a descendant of a family connected with the mountain. It's our way of recognizing the old Barclay and Laquin reunions that were held years ago on the mountain. It's also a great conversation starter!
Barclay Mountain Heritage Day will be held rain for shine. The main programs are held under tents and most exhibitors are under tents. There are also several things to see inside the museum and neighboring community building should the weather be an issue. We recommend you also come prepared just in case.
