Great historical information about Berks county. Interesting information about the great heritage! You need to go to the 5th floor of the Google works. And follow the signs to get there. It is one of the best kept secrets in Berks County.

Every time we have visited we have been pleased and since everything is so fresh we ended p with more then what we expected. We have never been disappointed. Going there early in the morning is the best since it is so popular with everyone.

The Farmer's Market at the Fairgrounds is a great place to shop. Fresh meats, produce, baked goods,and specialty items are available. But it is also a great place to eat and socialize. Take your time because there are so many choices for a good breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

First off this a small non profit organization trying hard to save old Reading Lines Railroad equipment and do have the largest collection for one railroad. The museum is small are ran by volunteers. Outside you will find restored and waiting to be restore cars and engines. They do a really good job for the resources they have.
