You’ve heard the saying “History can be fun”…well, we think history IS fun (especially in Lopez, Pennsylvania!)

Lopez is filled with history, and what better way to learn about it with children than to experience the many places to visit in this The Keystone State city that can actually take you back in time!

Historical attractions come in all shapes and sizes. There are landmarks where iconic events happened. There are homes of historic figures filled with treasures and artifacts from their amazing lives. There are historic buildings whose walls are filled with stories from Lopez’s past.
