Grey Towers, the home of Gifford Pinchot, America’s first Chief Forester, conservationist and Pennsylvania Governor, is a National Historic Site.
“Grey Towers is the ancestral home of Gifford Pinchot, first chief of the U.S. Forest Service and twice Governor of Pennsylvania. Public programs and guided house and garden tours introduce visitors to the Pinchot family and the many ways they helped shape conservation in America.
“Natural resource and conservation groups use Grey Towers for conferences and meetings. The Forest Service provides Leadership Development programs here. Visitors of all ages enjoy trails, arts, and education programs.
“Grey Towers Heritage Association supports the efforts of the US Forest Service to preserve and maintain the estate’s historic integrity, to continue the tradition of Pinchot hospitality, and to strengthen Grey Towers’ connection to our community. GTHA helps support public programs that tell the interesting story of how one family helped shape our nation’s thinking about conservation.” Source: Grey Towers on Facebook
