Cool story about Black Moshannon......... “In Pennsylvania, there have been only eight documented meteorite finds. They are the Pittsburgh, Bradford Woods, Moun...t Joy, Bald Eagle, Shrewsbury, New Baltimore, Chicora, and Black Moshannon State Park meteorite.
The last documented meteorite find was on July 10, 1941, and it had a mass of 705 grams (1.55 pounds). The Black Moshannon Park meteorite, as it was named, was discovered by Robert Reed of Philadelphia, who, upon exiting his tent early that morning, heard the meteorite fall through the treetops and bury itself at the base of a nearby tree. The meteorite missed hitting the tent and his sleeping son by only four feet (Stone and Starr, 1932).”
Here is a detailed brochure of the upcoming Winter Festival on January 20th, 2018. As of now, we have ice and snow, so we're planning on it!

The park will make a final decision on whether or not to hold the event by Thursday, January 18th at 3:00pm. Check back on our facebook page for the final decision.
