Step back in time in Northeastern Pennsylvania’s only museum dedicated to showing the history of the Delaware Indian. the museum with both inform and perhaps shock you. It will show the North American history of humans in Northeastern Pennsylvania from 10,500 BC to the contact period with European explorers and settlers prior to the American Revolution. You will see the Delaware Indian’s peaceful co-existence with other Indians. And…the shocking and short 100 years it took the white man to virtually eliminate almost all traces of the Indian’s existence.
The museum is hosed in an 1840 Mansion built by Mr. John Van Campen Coolbaugh. It is one of the oldest frame structures in the Poconos. The building has served many purposes over the years, including a boarding house, a stage coach shop, a safe house for the Underground Railroad, a Speakeasy during Prohibition, and a dormitory for Camp Sunny Brook.in 1976, with the property being in great disrepair, was purchased as the site of the Pocono Indian Museum. Through the dedication and hard work of the Law Family, the building was brought back to its original splendor.
