Kooser State Park

Kooser State Park

In the heart of the Laurel Highlands at an altitude of 2,600 feet, Kooser State Park attracts visitors year-round to its 250 acres of forest and the beautiful trout stream that flows the full length of the park.

The park’s original design character was stamped by the Civilian Conservation Corps projects of the 1930s that established the existing lake and most of its use areas, its architecture and site details. The park design stresses rustic values in site and building materials and in their application: native stone, rough sawn and stained wood surfaces, log and timber members.

U.S. Mint

The Philadelphia Mint was the first mint to be opened but what you’ll be visiting is actually the fourth building to house the mint. The initial idea started in 1792 by President Washington. The mint first only produced coins as our currency and still, to this day, has the original machine used to press those coins.

All tours are self guided and you’ll see everything from large coils of copper and nickel to the seven glass mosaics the Tiffany created to celebrate the opening of the third building in 1901. Look for the areas designed for the kids. All tours have audio.

While you’re there don’t forget to look for Peter. He’s the Mint Eagle. He made the first mint his home and the mint artists still study Peter when using new eagle designs.
