Cultural Resources

The South Mountain region has a rich human history – a center of Native American activity, the 18thCentury European immigration, the iron industry’s boom in the 18th and 19th centuries, a contested Civil War landscape, and the roots of American forestry and the environmental movement. Physical remnants of many of these significant histories abound on the landscape today.

This history continues to shape the landscape and our communities, and is critical to the region’s sense of place. As such, the Partnership works to preserve and share the South Mountain landscape’s storied human legacy.
