Rose Valley Trails

The trails at Rose Valley can be walked on your own, but there is a unique  history & architecture tour that’s led by one of the members of the Rose Valley Historical Society. It reminds us what life in Delco  looked like a century ago, taking you through streets and back yards, before passing the famous Thunderbird Lodge, which is now the Rose Valley Arts & Crafts Museum.  The tour crosses the bridge at Minguas Run, and goes down a lane to the Old Mill, now a beautiful and historic venue for weddings and events.  You’ll pass the rustic School at Rose Valley and houses that were either designed or renovated by noted architect, Will Price.

To take this tour, visit or call (484) 444-2961.
