Tour the Villages and Towns Built by Oil & Timber Barons
Bradford National Historic District
A self-guided audio walking tour of Main Street in Bradford highlights the eclectic architecture built by the early oil barons. The largest number of structures, primarily commercial buildings, featuring Neo-Classical, Colonial Revival, Romanesque and Art Deco architecture were built between 1880 and 1920.
Kane is truly a “Star” in the forest – the five highways of Rt. 6, Rt. 321 North, Rt. 321 South, and Rt. 66 appear as a five-pointed star on road maps when they meet in Kane, Pennsylvania. ArtWorks at the Depot, an artisan co-op, and the McCleery Discovery Center, with displays of the Lobo Wolves, are both located within the historic Kane Depot.
A self-guided walking tour along scenic Rt. 6 in Victorian Smethport showcases a piece of Americana. Stroll past the Victorian mansions that line Smethport’s Main Street. Tour the Old Jail Museum, allow time to visit the quaint shops and the historic Route 6 Diner. A detailed brochure with map is available in Smethport at the outdoor kiosk in front of the McKean County Courthouse at 500 West Main Street.
