Visiting the Hidden Gems of Swatara State Park

Visiting Acriggs Waterfall and Bordner Cabin in Swatara State Park.

The 1939 Armar Bordner Cabin was built using Rustic Style Architecture along Aycrigg's Falls on Rattling Run in Swatara State Park, Bethel Township, Lebanon County PA.

Fossils can be collected within Swatara State Park along Old State Road/Bear Hole Trail. From Rt. 443 in Suedberg, take Swopes Valley Road over Swatara Creek. Park at the Trailhead. On the gravel road walk 1/2 mile toward Lebanon. The pit is on your left. Piles have been picked through, but you may find brachiopods and a few Trilobite pieces. A second fossil bed along I-81 where Late Ordovician trilobites and starfish Protasterina were buried was closed for safety reasons by PennDOT.

The Bordner Cabin YouTube Channel consists of interviews with Armar Bordner; Linda, his daughter; and others who knew Armar who grew up in the Brock mansion in what is now Coleman Park; got his Master's at Penn State; taught shop at Lebanon and Northern Lebanon HS; married Olive "Peg" who worked as a secretary at the Steel Foundry....
