The Berks History Center Road Ramble, the self-guided driving tour that is a nod to the past, when BHC held Mystery Road Rambles in the late 1980s and early 1990s, will return this fall in October. The event is an innovative experience meant to keep audiences safe while providing educational and cultural opportunities community members can enjoy with others.

The Fall ’21 Road Ramble will take place on Saturday, October 9. Participants will start at the Berks History Center, 940 Centre Ave., Reading, PA, and ramble through Muhlenberg, Longswamp, and Alsace Townships.

The route narrative covers the history of local towns and historic sites such as the Berks History Center, the Reading Fairgrounds, Madeira Air Field, East Penn Manufacturing, the Dryville Hotel, the Mertztown Train Station, and much more.

The Fall ’21 Road Ramble runs from 1014pm and concludes at the William Penn Fire Tower on Skyline Drive where there will be a Pork BBQ fundraiser for an additional charge. Food will also be available at the Longswamp Township Historical Society for purchase.

Tour-goers will receive a Fall ’21 Road Ramble Packet, including a Road Ramble Route Booklet, information on our contests, a narrative CD or USB, and a BHC Fall ’21 Road Ramble Participant bumper sticker.

Tickets are $35/car for BHC Members and $45/car for non-members and are available on the Berks History Center website berkshistory.org or call BHC at (610) 375-4375 on Wednesdays to Saturdays from 9-3pm.
