Kinzua, a treasure

A very interesting, lengthy article filled with photos and pertinent information regarding Kinzua and surrounding areas (“Color Me Rad: Reborn Bridge Draws Visitors,” Sept. 15 Magazine) truly piqued our interest to visit, and visit we did for several days.

We stayed at Kane Manor Inn, a work-in-progress bed-and-breakfast; walked the bridge and railroad observation platform (such a view of what a tornado can do and did in 2003 to these structures); spent hours inside the World War II Museum in Eldred, a short drive from Kane, being “educated while being amused” by the museum’s director, Steve Appleby; stopped in the Olde Schoolhouse Village Shoppes (also in Eldred), a collection of arts/​crafts objects cleverly displayed within the facility; and drove through the Smethport Mansion District, another short distance from Kane. 

And, everywhere, the fall colors were awesome.

Enough reflecting on our visit …

Just wanted to say that, thanks to your article, we discovered a great place to visit just a short distance from home (three hours’ drive) and, most likely, would not have ventured there. But this trip has made us eager to return and explore the myriad winter sports offered.

Keep exposing those hidden treasures found in our state.
