Our area holds a wide
variety of natural attractions including five spectacular falls in small
mountain streams and several large rock formations.
The Elk range is dotted
with the sites of bygone lumber camps and logging ghost towns. Some of
the sites include Memorial Springs, which honors perished forest fire
fighters, and the Noble-Chambers Memorial Forest, which honors two foresters
that were killed by an explosion in the Quehanna Wilds.
Other points of interest
include the locations of powder factories that provided dynamite for the
Panama Canal, the Bucktail Regiment Civil War Monument, the sites of nine CCC
camps used from 1933-1941, the Cameron County Little Museum, the PA Lumber
Museum, the Tom Mix (silent cowboy movie star) birthplace and museum, the
remnants of the 2053 foot Kinzua Railroad Bridge wood viaduct, the original
site of the home of the Sylvania Electric Products, and the Austin Dam
