Conococheague Institute [PA]

The Conococheague Institute serves as a center for developing and promoting an awareness of the natural history and cultural significance of the Conococheague region, and more broadly, the Appalachian frontier in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Virginia. The Institute has a special focus on exploring the history of the clash of cultures in the backcountry and the conflicts here from the French and Indian War through the American Revolution.

The location offers visitors a variety of special events and educational programs, exhibits that illustrate the lives of early Central Pennsylvania Settlers, and provides a collection of primary and secondary books and other materials which explore the history of the region and the French and Indian War. The site offers genealogical information, an events calendar, an online gift shop, and general information about the institute.
