DIRECTIONS

LAND AND TRAILS

Located on the outskirts of historic Millersburg, the Ned Smith Center Lands and Trails encompass more than 500 acres of forest and meadow that stretch from the scenic Wiconisco Creek to the top of Berry’s Mountain. The land includes a mature hardwood forest alive with deer, bear, wild turkey, grouse, fox, along with hundreds of species of songbirds, insects and reptiles.

Public hunting has been allowed on the Center’s lands since the lands were acquired in 1993. The Ned Smith Center has a long-established cooperative agreement with the Pennsylvania Game Commission for hunting on private lands. Public hunting is ONLY permitted on the Ned Smith Center lands in the areas south of the Rail Trail to the top of Berry’s Mountain. Public hunting is NOT PERMITTED on Ned Smith Center lands from the Rail Trail north to Route 209. This is due to the high volume of non-hunting hikers, anglers, and the general public that visit the Center and enjoy its lands.

Additionally, because hunting is permitted on certain areas of the Center’s lands, the Center strongly encourages everyone using the trails during all hunting seasons to wear orange. Orange vests are available for loan from the gift shop during open hours, Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. If a hunter is unsure of the areas where hunting is permitted, it is the hunter’s responsibility to contact the Center for clarification.

Any questions regarding use of the lands should be directed to John P. Booth, Ned Smith Center Executive Director, at 717-692-3699, or via email at jbooth@nedsmithcenter.org. The Center offers a portion of its lands as a public hunting area to support responsible hunting, and as a celebration of America’s outdoor heritage; and appreciates the public’s cooperation.

Please note, that absolutely NO motorized vehicles are allowed on Ned Smith Center Trails. If you see any issues, please report them to Ned Smith Center staff immediately.

Ned Smith Gallery

Welcome Home

In February of 1999 Marie Smith updated her will, leaving the legacy of Ned Smith and a substantial portion of his finest works to what is now known as the Ned Smith Center for Nature and Art.  Marie did not stop there, knowing that Ned had sold a number of his paintings and others were given to Game Commission employees or simply donated to help charities raise money, Marie wanted to ensure the Center had the resources to “buy back” any originals that became available.  In that same will, Marie left a “restricted fund” to be used solely for that purpose:  to buy back Ned Smith’s originals.  This exhibit celebrates Marie’s foresight as many of these original pieces of Ned’s art were purchased with Marie’s “restricted funds”, and we welcome them home. 

Once again, we thank you Marie!

If you would be interested in donating to Marie’s Art Fund,  sponsoring the purchase of Ned’s original works as they become available, please contact John P. Booth, Executive Director.

Special thanks to the Pennsylvania Game Commission for their generous support of the Ned Smith Gallery. Be sure to check out the “From the Collection of the Pennsylvania Game Commission” wall, featuring a rotating mini exhibit of Ned’s work, owned by PGC.

 

Romberger Gallery

The Romberger Gallery is located between the Olewine and Ned Smith Gallery and showcases local artists’ work and provides a platform to reach a larger audience and make their pieces available for purchase to all the art lovers that walk the Center’s lands and galleries.

The current exhibit in the Romberger Gallery is:

Jeremy Miller's "Of Christmas & Catechism: The 12 Days of Christmas"
