Pennsylvania … Where Vacation Memories Last a Lifetime!

PCOA Online Contests

Current Contest: “Where In Pennsylvania?”

Win a $50.00 gift certificate to get started on your next great Pennsylvania vacation! One winner will be selected at random from all correct entries on April 10th. Certificate may be used at any member property.

The following photos represent three different Pennsylvania attractions for you to identify. Submit your answers for all three locations by April 10th, or you’ll be too late. Need help? We will add clues to this page between now and April 10th, so come back again if you're not certain. You may also enter now and submit one or more corrected entries later, if you would like to change an answer after reading a clue. In order to win, you must correctly identify all three attractions. Still too difficult? We will have a second “I don't know the answer” consolation drawing. Either way, only one entry will count per person for random drawings. If there is more than one correct entry, we will select one winner randomly from all correct entries. We will announce the two winners in our next E-Newsletter, following the drawing.

The winners in our previous contest are Lauren Chubb and David Plowman. The winners will be contacted by e-mail for their mailing addresses, and their prizes will be sent in the mail. Congratulations to our winners!

Location 1:
I was built in 1891. I stand in Erie's “Millionaire's Row”. I provide a glimpse into the grandeur of Erie's 19th century elite. My exhibits change periodically, but my family's artifacts inside of me are permanent. I offer tours and am open to visitors seeking to discover the elegance of Erie's previous centuries. What am I?
Location 2:
I opened for business in February of 1906 in Altoona, PA. I was the first structure of my kind in America to be devoted to the theatrical arts. I was jointly recognized by the United States Department of the Interior and the Pennsylvania Historical Museum Commission for my historic, economic, and architectural significance and was then entered on the National Register of Historic Places in May 1973. National touring company productions of “A Christmas Carol,” “Beauty and the Beast,” and “The Odd Couple” starring Jamie Farr and William Christoper, have energized audiences and continue to uphold the my rich tradition of live theatrical experiences. In 1965 a foundation, together with Altoona Community Theatre, raised $47,500 to purchase me from the Notopolous family, in order to prevent me from being torn down and replaced with a parking lot. Who am I?
Location 3:
I was formerly a theater built 1920-21, in Nanty Glo, PA. My job is to showcase the once-thriving coal mining industry of Nanty Glo, Blacklick and Jackson Townships, and Vintondale. I educate visitors about the area's varied ethnic cultures, and the economic hardships shared by mining families during most of the period when “coal was king” in my region. My Jackson Township tax record of 1909 listed me as 1 lot, 1 house, used as storerooms, owned by George Commons and Joseph Maxwell. In 1912-13 I was converted to a hotel and burned down in 1918. What am I?
