History, Learning and Recreation
There's plenty of American history in Somerset, PA—dating back to the Revolutionary War until as recently as 2002. To see a restored 1770s farm house, visit the Somerset Historical Center. Many people also want to pay their respects at the Korean War and Vietnam War Memorial, located at the intersection of Center Ave. and Union St. We will never forget the tragedy of September 11, 2001. We remember and honor the men and women who died that day at the site of the plane that missed its intended target and crashed in Pennsylvania because of the brave Americans on board determined not to let the terrorists succeed. See the Flight 93 National Memorial to remember those brave souls and the innocent victims of that terrible day. The following year the world rallied around Somerset, PA, after a mining disaster almost trapped nine miners at the Quecreek Mine. They were subsequently rescued and their story became a cautionary tale for the mining industry all over the globe.
In addition to these museums and memorials, there are plenty of family-friendly activities to enjoy, such as the always-popular Mountain Craft Days or hitting the "beach" at Lake Somerset.
