Museums & Historical Sites

The traveling the Byway’s 71-mile length provides an amazing amount of opportunities to witness remnants of an early time. The once-busy D& H Canal has been unearthed by some local communities. The nation's oldest existing wire cable suspension bridge, built by Brooklyn Bridge designer John A. Roebling's Delaware Aqueduct in 1848 still in use today will carry your car across the River to the Zane Grey Museum in Lackawaxen, PA., the former home of the famous western novelist. Architecture found in the villages and hamlets stand as a testimant of time gone by.

Many historic sites are easily visited from the Byway one is the Minisink Battleground, the site of a bloody 1779 Indian and Tory victory over Colonials. Fort Delaware in Narrowsburg is a living re-enactment of regional frontier life as well as Fort Decker in Port Jervis, the southern gateway to the Upper Delaware Scenic Byway.
