Situated in the Endless Mountains of Susquehanna County, the Dennis Farm is a unique historic site and environmental resource for Pennsylvania and beyond. The 153-acre farm, purchased in 1793 by Prince Perkins, a free African American, has for over 200 years and 7 generations been owned and preserved by the Dennis Family. It affords a stunning glimpse into not only the lives of free African Americans over the last two centuries, but also of the agricultural legacy of the region. Natural gas industry executives, state and local elected officials and other regional community leaders were in attendance.
