Presque Isle State Park Requests Memorabilia To Help Celebrate 100th Anniversary

Next year will mark the 100th anniversary of Presque Isle becoming a Pennsylvania state park, and park officials are looking for your memories and photos to help celebrate.

For those who have enjoyed time at Presque Isle, now is a great time to look through old photos and memorabilia. You may have something of historical significance or just a great way to reminisce about the past.

The park is looking for any historical photos of recreation, buildings, Old Lake Road, engineering structures, and wildlife.

They are also looking for any fun and unique stories that you can tell us about the park, these can be from the 1920s up to today that focus on the peninsula. Old paintings, journals, environmental projects, and anything related to the peninsula is welcome.

If you have questions, or something you’d like to share, send it for consideration to the Presque Isle environmental education specialist: Please include as much information as you can, such as dates, locations, and stories.
