Harrisburg Area Community College also has a campus here.

Indian Echo Caverns: 368 Middletown Rd, Hershey. Tour breathtaking limestone caverns rich in beauty and history. The Caverns were first opened to the general public in 1929, when Mr. John Bieber opened the doors to the caverns.  Mr. Bieber realized that many people wishing to visit the caverns might be put off by the treacherous, uneven terrain that nature created.  Bieber undertook a massive commercialization process, in which all of the pathways in the caverns were made safe for travel, as well as opening up many rooms closed off because of huge mineral deposits.  The caverns were a natural Mecca of the region, attracting thousands of visitors in its first years.  However, sadly, the caverns fell upon hard times during the Great Depression, and Mr. Bieber lost ownership to the bank.  All was not lost, for in 1942, Mr. Edward S. Swartz, a Hershey native purchased the caverns.  Today, the ownership of the caverns still remain in his family, with hundreds of thousands of visitors walking the paths of the Susquehannocks each year.

Middletown Hummelstown Railroad: 136 Brown Street Middletown 17057.  The original M & H Railroad Company was formed in 1888 by local businessmen and construction of the line between its namesake Boroughs was completed in 1890.

In addition to our active fleet of locomotives and maintenance equipment, we have a collection of railway rolling stock displayed in our Middletown Yard.

Music Box Museum: 225 W. Market Street Marietta PA 17547In 1994 after myself, David Thompson and George Haddad having sold our gift shop and old country store in northern New Jersey to retire to Marietta, Pennsylvania. We discovered how much we had missed having customers and opened a museum in our home. Come enjoy a guided tour of our trim green brick Federal Townhouse main floor, Circa 1790-1804. Walk among the beautifully appointed rooms. Listen to the angelic sounds of antique musical boxes while hearing about their background.

The name is a bit of a misnomer. As our museum is not particularly petite and the 76 music boxes represent only the tip of the iceberg, which vary from the tiny snuff box musical works, Circa 1820 to the wooden cob organ, which was made in Chautauqua, New York, Circa 1900.

Visitors will find collections of New England art glass, clocks, Bennington pottery, baskets, toys, china displayed throughout the main floor. A special exhibit is mounted for each collection once a month. In the library, there is a rare American horse trough basket and a painting of Westminster Abbey that chimes. The largest Swiss 1896 disc musical box resides in the living room next to the museum's smallest music box, hidden in an album on a table. Lift the bread basket on the dining room table and it plays. Ditto for the seat on a child’s chair and the statue of an inebriated man leaning against a lamp post, whistling "Show me the way to go home." The star of the collection is a seven-foot-high Regina music box, the largest ever made in America. There's so much in our fascinating house museum that I takes visitors through on hourly tours, My partner George is hard at work downstairs producing our own antique music boxes for sale in our giftshop.

Sight and Sound Theatres: 300 Hartman Bridge Rd, Strasburg. Inspirational live stage productions in each of their two Lancaster County Theaters. Glenn and Shirley Eshelman started Sight & Sound in the summer of 1975, with a 10-week multimedia show The Wonder of It All in an auditorium rented from Lancaster Bible College. Based on that success, they built the original Sight & Sound Auditorium (now Living Waters Theatre) on Rt. 896 near Strasburg, Pennsylvania. In July 1976, the Sight & Sound Auditorium opened for the performance of A Land of Our Own. Live actors and actresses were eventually added to the productions, and Behold the Lamb debuted as the first full-length live stage production at the original Sight & Sound Auditorium in 1987. A larger facility, the Sight & Sound Entertainment Centre opened in March 1991.

Wright's Ferry Mansion:  368 2nd Street Columbia 17512.  Wright's Ferry Mansion stands as evidence of the strong rooting of the settlement made by a handful of English Quakers coming from Chester and Darby, Pennsylvania, to wild and virtually uninhabited country along the Susquehanna River. Pervaded by English Quaker elegance and simplicity, this house, built in 1738, reflects the sophisticated tastes and panoply of interests of its original owner, Susanna Wright. A dynamic force in establishing colonial self-sufficiency, she encouraged industry, especially the production of silk; imparted her knowledge of law and medicine by providing counseling and medical help; implanted her Quaker beliefs; and stimulated a literary current through her poetry and correspondence. The mansion houses a superlative collection of Philadelphia furniture, English ceramics, needlework, metals and glass, all made prior to 1750.  Two books about the Wright's Ferry Mansion have recently been published. To order your copies contact us at 717-684-4325.  Open May through October, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday 10AM to 3PM.  Admission charged.

We offer things that last; pieces that folks can treasure over several generations. In today's fast moving, highly disposable world we think that is a remarkable accomplishment!
