When you pull up it looks like it's going to be a great walk around inside a big house....not so. It's the first floor only with sound items that belonged to Zane Grey, a bed etc...and when I asked why I couldn't go upstairs I was told because it's all offices. Then why offer a tour?? I want to see everything! What was upstairs in those days? I'm sure he didn't just stay on the first floor in just a couple odd rooms! How many rooms were upstairs? What were they used for???
Me? I'd bring a lil picnic lunch and wander around the cemetery down the road. The headstones are sooooo interesting. Or go across the street and eagle watch like a lot of folks do.
In other words.....I thought Zane Grey "museum" was not worth the time I'll never get back. Sorry, but true.

Very interesting information about Zane Grey, in a lovely house museum, beautiful grounds, lovely beach, easily accessed when boating on the Delaware River.

Annually, the U.S. Park Service has a great exhibit on the grounds.

The home of author Zane Grey is the site for a small museum dedicated to his life and works. It is a National Parks site and it is well done. The museum is not large, only a few rooms are furnished, but the displays are informative. The location of the home, on the Deleware River, just downstream from the cconfluence with the Lackawaxen River is a beautiful spot. There are additional historical sites including the site where a canal was created over the Delaware River to allow tow boats to proceed to and from market even when the Delaware was being used to float logs downstream. It is a really interesting piece of 19th century engineering.

the former home of Zane Grey let me step back in time when the author's books were in popular demand. Set in a bucolic area of PA the museum invites with videos of the era.

Zane Grey lived here and fished here during the height of his fame, and he really loved the Delaware River! (and Women!) As is pointed out in his many writings and correspondences on display, he had quite the roving eye, he was a funny guy! This place is worth the stop. After visiting here, go south on Scenic Dr. 1/4 mile and you can have some good food and drinks at the Lackawaxen Inn!
