Boulton Historic Site and Jacobsburg Environmental Education Center Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Pennsylvania longrifles. Converted Civil War firearms, some of European origin. Nineteenth-century wedding dresses. Horse-drawn sleighs. Dam ruins. Old, if not exactly ancient, forest. You’ll see all these things and more on this hike. It begins at a small parking lot off Henry Road. There’s a collection of informational panels offering details on the Henry family and its rifle-making legacy.
Starting with William I, the family produced firearms from 1750 to 1895, all but seven of those years here in the Lehigh Valley. Beware, though. Those signs reference the blue-blazed Homestead Trail. They also talk about following the 0.5-mile Boulton Heritage Walk, which is said to be marked with a yellow flintlock symbol. Both trails exist."
