Burnt Cabins PA – Have To Visit Someday #1

A burnt cabin

Burnt Cabins is an unincorporated community in Dublin Township, Fulton County, Pennsylvania, United States, at the foot of Tuscarora Mountain. It contains U.S. Route 522 and I-76 (Pennsylvania Turnpike).

By 1750, the town had grown to 11 squatters cabins and was known as Sidneyville. The homes of these early settlers were burned by order of the provincial government, after Indians complained against white encroachment on their land. Participants in the burning included Conrad Weiser, Richard Peters, George Croghan, and Benjamin Chambers. The village’s development was most influenced by the construction of the Burnt Cabins Grist Mill, which still produces flour and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
