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
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, and a Suffolk Punch draft horse 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.

Quiet Valley offers three different camps covering age ranges from Kindergarten through ninth grade. This is a wonderful opportunity for children to learn about such things as farm animals, gardening, and typical 19th-century chores like wash day. They will have hands-on experiences with heritage crafts, cooking, and baking. Games, hay jumps, hiking, and exploring the homestead are all part of the good times waiting for Quiet Valley camp kids.
