Grey Towers Open for Veterans Day Fee free for Veterans, Active Military



MILFORD, PA – Grey Towers National Historic Site, Milford, PA, will offer a fee-free Open House for veterans, active military personnel and their families on Friday, Nov. 11, from 11 am-2 pm.

The event is in keeping with the Pinchot family tradition of welcoming the community, including veterans, to their home at Grey Towers, when Gov. Gifford Pinchot and his wife Cornelia lived here.

The 1886 mansion was active with guests and visitors during its heyday when Pinchot, who also was founder and first chief of the US Forest Service, was Governor of Pennsylvania. In addition to welcoming veterans to his private home, Pinchot rode the firetruck during a parade in Milford at the conclusion of WW II and authored numerous articles making a case for conservation as the foundation for global peace.

For information about the fee-free Veterans Day event contact Grey Towers at greytowers@fs.fed.us or call 570-296-9630.
