Scripture Rocks Heritage Park
Hidden in the woods surrounding the town of Brookville, Pennsylvania is a story about a man, his triumphs, his hardships, his obsessions, and his deeply felt religious convictions. Many local legends abound about the mysterious carved Bible rocks frequently encountered in the wooded hillsides around Brookville, Pennsylvania. But what is the real story behind the rocks and the man who created them 100 years ago? We invite you to make plans to explore the Scripture Rocks Heritage Park this summer.
The park is sectioned into color-coded trail loops for easy
way finding. Engraved rocks are individually numbered
and correspond to the identification in our trail guide
which is available at the trail head or at the Jefferson
County History Center for a small donation.
This booklet enables visitors to read the corresponding
engravings and obtain insight to their meaning. Trail side
panels also help tell both the story of Stahlman and
highlight other natural aspects of this area including local
history, lumber heritage, wildlife, geology and a small
prehistoric archaeological site located within the park.
This is a free public access site open from dawn to dusk. For more information, contact the Jefferson County History Center at (814) 849-0077.
A Public picnic area and restroom are available at the trailhead and other picnic tables are also within the park for public use.
Groups wanting to reserve the pavilion for an entire day should contact the JCHC at 814-849-0077. There is a $25 donation for reservations.
The park is located on Route 28, 1/8 mile south of I-80
exit 81 at 560, PA 28, Brookville, PA.
