Zane Grey Museum in Pike County, PA, in the Delaware River Highlands area

The renowned chronicler of the American West, Zane Grey’s home from 1905 to 1918 was right here, along the banks of the Upper Delaware River.

Grey, an avid fisherman, was especially fond of the setting in Lackawaxen, PA, just below the confluence of the Lackawaxen and Delaware Rivers and just north of the Roebling Bridge. The Zane Grey Museum displays Grey’s memorabilia, photographs, and books in the rooms that served as Grey's office and study.

The National Park Service preserves Grey’s home as part of the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River. The museum is open seasonally, usually Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day Weekend. (Closed some weekdays.)
