PAST & PRESENT
STEP BACK IN TIME Founded in 1750, Cumberland Valley is steeped in history. As you explore, you’ll find museums and historical sites where you can interact with the past in new ways and uncover why the Valley is as passionate about history as it is about making it. Here are fascinating history facts to help you start planning your journey.
Organized in 1789, Union Fire Co. No. 1 in Carlisle is the oldest continuously-operating volunteer fire company in Pennsylvania and houses a museum.
During the Civil War, more than 40,000 soldiers passed through Mt. Holly Springs on their way to Gettysburg. Visitors can see the gravestone for an unknown Confederate soldier, who died at the Holly Inn after falling ill, in the borough cemetery. Today visitors can enjoy dining and an overnight stay at the historic Holly Inn.
The Cumberland Valley Railroad pioneered the use of sleeping cars in the spring of 1839, a first on any American railroad. You can view four 1800’s buildings from the Cumberland Valley Railroad at the Mechanicsburg Museum.
Mary Ludwig Hays (better known as Molly Pitcher) is renowned for her bravery at the Battle of Monmouth during the Revolutionary War where she assisted her husband at his gun station. Visit her grave and statue at the Old Graveyard in Carlisle on E. South Street.
The Carlisle Indian Industrial School, the remnants of which can be viewed on the Carlisle Barracks, is where Olympian Jim Thorpe and more than 10,000 American Indian children went to school from 1879–1918.
12 | CUMBERLAND VALLEY TRAVEL GUIDE 2019
Dill’s Tavern is a 12-room stone structure erected from 1794 to 1819. It was originally situated on a 500-acre farm that was also home to a huge distillery operation. The tavern hosts numerous special events and is open for guided tours on Sunday afternoons. Carlisle Theatre, originally called The Comerford, opened in May 1939. The Art Deco theatre flourished through the 1960s, declined in the 1970s and closed in 1986. The restored Theatre was reopened in 1993 and a visit to Carlisle would not be complete without stopping to see a movie or musical performance. Legend has it that it was no less than the uncle of American Folk hero Davey Crockett who first settled along the Yellow Breeches Creek where Allenberry Resort sits today. The Still House is one of Allenberry Resort’s original stone buildings. A recent renovation makes it an ideal location to stay with the entire family.
FAMILY FUN • From the interactive exhibits at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center to the full-size mounts of animals such as zebras, giraffes and elephants at the Oakes Museum, history in Cumberland Valley is fun and informative for the entire family. Take a break from the learning and let loose with laser tag, go-karts and arcade games at Carlisle Sports Emporium or bounce, flip and jump at Skyzone Indoor Trampoline Park. See page 18 for more suggestions. HOPS • After a day of exploring the museums and outdoor locations that make Cumberland Valley the ideal location for history buffs, relax at our brew pubs and restaurants where you can sample craft beer and taste our delicious food. See page 8 for more information about the Cumberland Valley Beer Trail. LOCAL DISCOVERIES • Find a self-guided walking tour of your choice at VisitCumberlandValley.com.

FRESH-PICKED FUN Cumberland Valley is the epicenter for fresh foods and locally-grown farm products. With a strong agricultural heritage and an abundance of orchards and farm stands, you won’t have to travel far to experience the beauty and bounty of each season. Here are some highlights to help you travel like the locals. TIP: Many of the locations are open seasonally. Be sure to check VisitCumberlandValley.com for months and hours of operation. Start a fresh-picked fun weekend at Maplewood Farm Market in Shippensburg. This farm market and greenhouse sells vegetables, melons, berries, tree fruit, pumpkins, deli items, preserves, cider, eggs, dairy products and cheeses, baked goods, honey, flowers, herbs, and more. You can also find u-pick strawberries and pumpkins in season.
Paulus Farm Market in Mechanicsburg is known for their u-pick flowers and pumpkins. Pick a wonderful bouquet for an amazing price! Paulus is also a great place to bring the kids. In the warm months, kids can climb on the wooden tractor and wagon, visit with barnyard animals and swing on a horse tire. In the fall, they can enjoy a mini-straw maze, corn and soybean boxes and a slide and climb area.

Although many of our farm stands are seasonal, local food is still an option in the winter months. Two locations for year-round farm-fresh products are Farmers on the Square in Carlisle, which moves indoors from January through April, and the indoor 60,000-square-foot West Shore Farmers Market in Lemoyne. Ashcombe Farm and Greenhouses is also open year-round and includes a garden center, a gift and floral area, baked goods, produce, gourmet foods, gardening gifts and supplies, display gardens and more.
