Visit These Fascinating Dam And Paper Mill Ruins In Pennsylvania For An Adventure Into The Past

Museums provide us a firsthand glimpse into people and events we might not otherwise get. However, sometimes we can learn about the past by visiting some of what was left behind – like the ruins of the Austin Dam and a nearby paper mill, destroyed in a tragic flood. Get a glimpse of that historic event at Austin Dam Memorial Park in Pennsylvania.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
