Clifford Township Historical Society to End Season with Open House


Submitted Article

The last Open house for this year for the three venues of the Clifford Township Historical Society will be Sunday, Oct. 21, from 1 to 4 pm. Start the tour at the historic Clifford Baptist Church, Church Street in Clifford that was built when Thomas Jefferson was still alive. Then drive a mile to the Museum of Local History in the Community Center Building at 119 Cemetery Street in Clifford. The exhibits in the museum include our Native American Canoe display with a gorgeous mural by Michelle McLain and an audio presentation by Frank Little Bear, a blacksmith shop, general store, early farm house and barn and the fire tower map from Elk Mountain. Another mile drive takes you to the renovated Hoover one room school at 2236 state route 2014.

Visitors are always impressed with the quality of our venues and enjoy the stories and information shared by the docents at each stop on the tour. Your whole family will enjoy the afternoon learning the history of our area and sharing their own stories with us.

The Clifford Children’s Garden, adjacent to the Community Center, is also open for young ones to hatch out of the dinosaur egg, bounce like Tigger, play in the Native American Long House and the pioneer log cabin, dig coal in the Clifford Mine Shaft, run through the 4 doors of history and pretend they are a butterfly. Signage in the Garden explains the history represented in the garden.

About Author

Managing Editor of, dedicated to providing interesting information about life in the Endless Mountains region of northern Pennsylvania. The website - a meager investment with no immediate return - is meant to be community-based and to reflect the varied tastes of its readers. Submissions from legitimate organizations and event coordinators are welcome and will be published as space and time allow. This website is operated by Endless Mountains Media Services. I am seeking submissions of news stories, promotional press releases, and photos for posting with full recognition for the submitter. I am also hoping to build a base of correspondents who would enjoy being my "ears and eyes" in parts of the four county region where news is happening. I am also a self-employed media consultant and freelance writer/editor, providing professional services for businesses, municipalities, and organizations for which retaining a full time staff writer is not a viable option.
