Preserving
Pennsylvania’s Agricultural Heritage

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 Suffolk Punch 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.

Quiet Valley’s traditional tour season is over for 2021, but there are other events and activities taking place so be sure to check the Calendar of Events and the Discover & Learn sections of the website.
