Zane Grey was an American author best known for his adventure and Western novels. Between 1905 and 1918 he lived in this house, which after he died was turned into a museum to honor his life and legacy. Admission is free and you can stroll around the house in a self-guided tour that explores the life of this renowned author. If you have any questions, National Park Service rangers will be happy to answer them for you. Also, spend some time hiking around the museum to get a feel of what inspired the late writer during this creative period of his life. Visiting the Zane Grey museum is definitely a fun thing to do when you visit PA.
