Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm, is a non-profit, living history museum preserving 19th century Pennsylvania German agricultural heritage. Period dressed interpreters portray descendants of Johann Depper, re-enacting daily life on the farm. Plan a visit today.
Nestled in the Pocono Mountain on 114 acres of beautiful pastures, woodlands and streams, Quiet Valley hosts all the farm animals typically found in the 1800s. Rabbits, chickens, ducks, geese, cows, pigs, goats, sheep, a mule and Clydesdale draft horses live on the homestead. The buildings include an 1850s bank barn, the original farmhouse, a cabin, spring house, ice house, smokehouse, dry house and assorted smaller barns. Quiet Valley is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Spooky Days on the Farm
Friday October 26 from 5:00pm – 8:00pm, Saturday October 27 from 1:00pm to 8:00pm, Sunday October 28 from 1:00pm to 5:00pm
Visit our historic farm and enjoy a look at the stranger side of Quiet Valley. During the daytime it will be more family focused with some not so spooky ghost stories, Halloween songs and dances, and take a horse-drawn wagon ride (conditions permitting). There will be kid appropriate “Dare to Touch” boxes, children’s craft area and some light refreshments available.
After dark things will get spookier as guests can visit the Witch in the Woods, if they are up to the challenge! Help solve a “murder” that took place on the farm in the 1800s. This is a true who-dunnit, play detective type of activity! Brave souls can also put their hand in the adult version of the creepy “Dare to Touch” boxes. $10 adults, $5 ages 3-12
The Friends of Quiet Valley have started taking sign ups for their workshop on November 3rd.
