Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival Celebrates 10 years in 2020 It’s hard to believe that it’s been 10 years since more than one thousand Jeeps invaded Butler County to attend the very first Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival. Since then, the Festival has expanded beyond anyone’s wildest dreams and has quickly become one of the largest Jeep-only events in the nation. In fact, in 2019, Jeep owners from 32 states traveled to Butler County, the Jeep’s birthplace, to participate in the Festival’s many activities and attractions. The Friends of the Bantam Jeep Association is planning even more excitement for the 10th-anniversary event on June 12-14. Jeep owners who are participating in the Festival will have a chance to be part of some special activities that will only be available at the 2020 Festival. In addition, the popular Jeep History Exhibit will feature special Jeep models that have rarely been displayed together before. “Ten years is a huge milestone, and we are excited that the Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival continues to be a place where Jeep enthusiasts from all over the nation gather together to share their passion with others who love Jeeps just as much as they do,” said Todd Wagner, president of the Friends of the Bantam Jeep Association. The Festival features many on-and-off-road activities for Jeep owners who register their Jeep to participate in the event. Activities are geared for vehicles straight off the lot as well as those that have been customized to tackle challenging off-road trails and obstacles. “Bantam really has something for everyone,” said Wagner. “Those who attend the Festival will see practically every Jeep ever made since the 1940s. There will be pristine Jeeps accessorized with shiny chrome parts and the latest lights as well as Jeeps covered in mud from attempting the Festival’s mud pit.”

Some of the Festival’s activities for registered Jeep owners include a Poker Run, Mystery Road Rally scavenger hunt, State Park Scenic Tour, Best of Bantam show, Jeep Playground obstacle course, and various trail rides. Those who don’t have Jeeps will have plenty to see as well. The Jeep History Exhibit features about 20 rare Jeeps along with the Festival’s Faces of Jeep display that showcases a museum-quality exhibition of Jeep grilles from several decades. It’s the largest display of Jeep grilles in the U.S. Those who appreciate military Jeeps that supported the U. S. Army in various wars will step back in time at the Military Encampment. Visitors can talk to individuals dressed in authentic military uniforms and see how soldiers lived during various wars. Other fun includes shopping at more than 150 vendors who travel to

the Festival from all over the United States to offer the latest Jeep parts, accessories and Jeep-themed merchandise. “If a guest isn’t a Jeep enthusiast when they walk through the gate, they are bound to become one after just a few hours at Bantam,” remarked Wagner. Other activities to enjoy are the Barbee Jeep Race where adults race each other down a hill in a child’s ride-on Jeep as well as Jeepardy games where enthusiasts can test their knowledge of Jeep trivia against other contestants. Merchandise, prize raffles, food vendors and more round out the Festival’s three-day offerings. For more information on special 10th-anniversary activities, Jeep registration, things to see and do, videos, photos and more, visit BantamJeepFestival.com.

Make it Memorable!


#MoraineSP A Look Back‌ Moraine State Park is not only a dynamic destination, but has a pretty unique story that started about 20,000 years ago when glaciers were present. When the glaciers finally retreated, they left behind accumulated debris, which is called a moraine; and how the park got its name. In the late 1800s, wells were drilled (and later abandoned) to extract oil and gas from the land. The rebirth of the land was a direct result of English-American engineer and conservationist, Dr. Frank Preston. He worked to form the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, which purchased the land. The mines were sealed and the oil and gas wells were capped. In 1968, the dam was completed and in 1970 Lake Arthur reached its full level. Moraine State Park was

times). Other points of interest include the Geography Lesson, the Hacienda, the Iron Gates, and the Coppices; all with a unique story to tell. The Park also has 40 types of evergreen trees located in the Arboretum, making it the largest concentration of its kind east of the Mississippi. Named after Dr. Frank Preston, an English-born conservationist and expert in glass technology, he was instrumental in founding the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy. Dr. Preston lived on the grounds and utilized the space for his research. Formerly a private residence, Preston Park was a gift to Butler Township in 2008 from the late Jane and Dr. Frank Preston. His laboratory and home are on-site and are available for guided tours. The tour is available at no cost, but registration is required and spaces are limited.

Glade Run Lake

L

ocated in Middlesex Township, Glade Run Lake is a 52-acre manmade lake, surrounded by luscious woodlands and farmlands. Used for recreation, conservation, and education this beautiful lake offers fishing, motorless boating and has become a wonderful attraction for families and tourists alike. In 2011, the earthen dam was cracked and declared unsafe; the lake had to be drained. That same year, the Glade Run Lake Conservancy (GRLC) was formed. This nonprofit, grassroots community organization went to great lengths aiding in the park’s restoration. They restored the fish and avian population, created a 1.5 mile walking trail encompassing the lake, constructed a handicapped accessible fishing deck and more! Since its reopening in 2017, the park has been transformed into a gorgeous oasis and flourishing habitat where visitors can enjoy the great outdoors in a tranquil and peaceful setting.

Jennings Environmental Education Center

L

ocated in Slippery Rock, Jennings Environmental Education Center is one of Butler County’s most unique parks to visit. Situated on 300 acres, Jennings provides a combination of protected prairie and forest and is the only protected prairie system in Pennsylvania. Visitors can hike year round on their 5-mile trail system through various terrains or stroll through the 20-acre prairie ecosystem, home to distinctive prairie plants and the endangered Massasauga rattlesnake (don’t worry, they are shy). Not only can visitors hike along a variety of trails, but the Education Center provides information about the environment and covers topics like fossils, trees, wildflowers, ecosystems, maple sugaring and more. Visitors can learn more about this beautiful prairie and forest through their award-winning display! Exhibits can be viewed Monday through Friday from 8 AM-4 PM, and on weekends when programs are scheduled. But perhaps the most popular time to visit is during “Celebrate the Bloom”, a festival in July hosted annually by Jennings featuring the bloom of their spectacular prairie flower, Liatris Spicata or Blazing Star. This free event features nature explorations, engaging demonstrations, local artisans, food vendors and live entertainment.

Washington’s Trail 1753 In 1753, the imperial nations of France and Great Britain and the Native Americans all claimed control of the Ohio Country, the area encompassing present-day western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio. Acting on orders from Virginia Governor Robert Dinwiddie, twenty-one-year-old George Washington embarked upon a dangerous expedition north from Williamsburg to deliver a diplomatic message to the French ordering them to evacuate the region. Already the French had erected three forts to reinforce their claim to the area: Fort Presque Isle (Erie, PA), Fort LeBoeuf (Waterford, PA) and Fort Machault (Franklin, PA). During his journey to the French forts in the winter of 1753-1754, young Washington encountered many hazards. There were excessive rains and vast quantities of snow. He was nearly shot by an Indian guide and nearly drowned in the icy waters of the Allegheny River near present-day Pittsburgh. When Washington returned to Williamsburg in January 1754, he reported to the governor that the French intended to remain entrenched in the Ohio Country. This marked the beginning of the military struggle known as the French and Indian War. Blue road signs with Washington’s silhouette mark a commemorative trail throughout western Pennsylvania. (The trail is considered commemorative, as sections of the actual path are open to debate.) Relive Washington’s first military expedition with Butler County Tourism’s Washington’s Trail Brochure, which will guide you along the drive-it-yourself tour, offering interesting history about this mission. There are also plenty of historical and natural attractions along the way!
