The Great Benninghoff Robbery

Join the park naturalist on a 1.5 mile hike to the Benninghoff Tableau as we uncover the story of the most famous robbery in the oil region!  This tale follows the Benninghoff family as well as the folks who stole over $200,000 from their household safe… That amount would be worth $7 million today!  How did they do it? Was the money ever recovered?  Join us to find out!  This hike is fairly easy, but it does have two hilly sections.  Wear comfortable hiking shoes, bring water, and dress for the weather!  To register call 814.676.1810 or email ikuberry@pa.gov.
