Event Details

The Wallenpaupack Historical Society will offer a presentation by local historian Jon Tandy at 1 p.m. on July 28 at the Brookfield Environmental Learning Center in Hawley PA on its famed dug out canoe.

Unearthed after the flood waters of Hurricane Diane receded in 1955, the canoe was found on a Ledgedale farm along the banks of the West Branch of the Wallenpaupack River. Believed to have been sunk intentionally by the Lenni Lenape Native Americans, the canoe was displayed at the late Lucy Unger’s Art and Antique Shop in Paupack prior to its present location.
