LACKAWAXEN, PA — The Zane Grey Museum was home to Zane Grey and his family from 1912 to 1918. Today the museum, which is preserved by the National Park Service, features many items from Grey’s life such as dental and baseball equipment, photos of his fishing adventures and his novels.

New hours will be in effect during the fall. During September, the museum is open Wednesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Starting in October, the museum’s hours will be Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The museum will close for the season on Sunday, October 20. Admission is free.

While in Lackawaxen, you can also visit Roebling’s Delaware Aqueduct (also known as the Roebling Bridge), the oldest existing wire suspension bridge in the nation. It was designed and built under the supervision of John A. Roebling, future engineer of the Brooklyn Bridge.
