As the fall season begins to flourish with its vibrant foliage and splashes of autumn colors throughout southwestern Pennsylvania, a very special festival will soon be held to commemorate and celebrate the historic covered bridges found within Greene and Washington counties.
The Harvest Festival has long been a treasured tradition in Greene County since the museum open its doors in 1971, and those who attend this event while visiting this beautiful part of southwestern Pennsylvania will be treated to a full slate of appealing attractions, such as encampments with reenactors and skirmishes, Native American reenactors, demonstrations, entertainment, retail and food vendors and much, much more.
When it comes to taking its place in American history, Greene County is unparalleled. And it’s because of a parallel of latitude that Pennsylvania’s southwestern-most county stands above all others. The famous Mason-Dixon Line, run from 1763-67 by British astronomers and surveyors Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon, ends its journey at the edge of Greene County.
We have our share of Native American Sites to be sure. Burial grounds, carved and painted rocks and caves. But there is one amazing artifact that remains that’s been overlooked in all the histories, guide books and in our own living memory. The Indian Trail Tree.
