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.

Upcoming Events & Activities

Quiet Valley’s Spring Preschool Program
The Preschool Program will continue for April and May 2020, as long as local schools are in session. If we need to cancel any of the weeks, we will do so on a week by week basis. Cancellations will be determined each week by Monday at noon. Watch your emails.

Corona Virus update:
We at Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm are very aware of the issues surrounding the Corona Virus. We realize the situation is changing daily and we are monitoring it closely as it develops. As an educational facility, we continue to follow, per our policy, the leads of area school districts as well as federal and state health agencies, and will be posting updates about upcoming activities. We realize not having answers immediately is frustrating and disappointing for our visiting public and we apologize.

Currently, all farm activities will be suspended through March 30, 2020.
Not surprisingly, these times are hard for everyone, including non-profit organizations.  If you would like to help Quiet Valley through this difficult situation, there are several ways you can contribute.  Please visit our page to make a financial contribution; we also accept gifts through AmazonSmile and Benevity, as well as Thrivent.

Quiet Valley cares deeply about our visitors, volunteers, members and staff who make our operation possible, and we wish you the best during this difficult time.

With best personal regards,
Tiffany H. Black, Executive Director, and the Quiet Valley Board of Directors

We are regretfully cancelling 19th Century Days scheduled for April 2020 due to issues surrounding the Coronavirus. Unfortunately rescheduling for this year is a logistical impossibility. Those registered for the workshops can expect to hear from Quiet Valley’s staff in the coming weeks.
