The John & Kathryn Zimmerman Center for Heritage provides a unique setting for Susquehanna National Heritage Area and is a lasting tribute to the civic leadership of its namesake donors. For half a century, John and Kathryn Zimmerman committed time and resources to improve the York community. In the late 1990’s, they saved this special place from decay and restored the home as a historic jewel on the riverfront. In 2007, the Zimmermans generously donated the home to the Susquehanna National Heritage Area to ensure its continued service as a site for preservation and heritage education.
The Zimmerman Center for Heritage operates as the headquarters of Susquehanna Heritage and as the Pennsylvania Official Visitor Contact and Passport Station for the Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail. Visitors to this historic riverfront home can become a Junior Ranger, enjoy a hike on the Native Lands County Park & Mason-Dixon Trail, launch a kayak or canoe on the Susquehanna River, see Susquehannock Indian artifacts, and more.
