National Apple Museum

154 West Hanover Street
Biglerville, PA 17307



Scotch-Irish settlers established farms in the Biglerville area before 1740, followed later by German families which stimulated agriculture practices. Railroads accelerated fresh fruit shipping after 1880, fruit processing after 1900. Today the area is one of the most intensive fruit regions in the country with nationally known processors and a variety of support industries.
The Biglerville Historical and Preservation Society, a non-profit organization, has done research on pioneer families, land settlements and genealogy. In April 1990 the Society opened The National Apple Museum to honor the founders of the Apple Industry.

You will enjoy your visit to this one-of-a-kind museum. A gallery display is followed by a treat of delicious apple juice and cookies, an 18-minute video "Apples, Apples, Apples," a guided tour of the second level exhibits and a visit to the gift shop.
