About
Unveil the tapestry of history while indulging in a serene RV camping escape at a regional learning center set amidst the verdant charm of southern Franklin County, Pennsylvania. Breathe life into your journey near the quaint village of Welsh Run, where a 30-acre retreat invites you to park your home-on-wheels and immerse in a resonant past. This living historic sanctuary, boasting a prestigious place on the National Register of Historic Places, welcomes you with the richness of Rock Hill Farman 18th-century farmstead where timeworn outbuildings and genteel historic house museums stand as silent testaments to the tales of yore. As an RV enthusiast, you can look forward to more than just a spot to rest; youre offered a pathway to discovery through a realm of educational wonders. Explore the dedicated research library for a cozy nook of learning, or traverse the network of peaceful walking trails leading you on a journey through time to a pioneer cemetery, each headstone whispering its own secrets. Step through the doors of two passionately relocated historic log structures that serve as portals to another era, and meander through the lovingly tended historic gardenseach petal and plot carefully curated to reflect heritage plants and landscaping styles of the bygone days. As dusk falls and you retire to your RV nestled in this peaceful countryside, relish in the enrichment this historical haven offers, having savored a day of learning, exploration, and tranquil RV camping harmony. Whether you fancy an educational adventure or a restful retreat steeped in history, this unique destination is poised to enrich your travels with cultural treasures and natural serenity.
