Franklin County officials attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony Saturday to commemorate the opening of the Battle of Monterey Pass Museum, on PA 16 near the intersection with Charmian Rd. The museum will officially open in April, but museum director John Miller said plans are to open the museum to the public on Saturdays through Nov. 15 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There are about 130 artifacts on display inside the museum, he said.
The Battle of Monterey Pass was fought for over ten hours on a rugged mountain, in a blinding thunderstorm during the middle of the night on July 4th & 5th, 1863.
The Paul K. and Anna E. Shockey Family Foundation contributed $50,000 to the Friends of the Monterey Pass Battlefield to continue their work with the construction of the museum.
