Drive Pittsburgh: Discover the settler history of Pennsylvania on an audio tour

Drive Pittsburgh: Discover the settler history of Pennsylvania on an audio tour

Travel to a time before white Europeans "tamed" the wilderness of Western Pennsylvania, when Indians built mounds and walked trails. Be wary, though. It becomes the most dangerous place on Earth. We begin at Logstown, the original Wild West town, and end at the forts built at the Forks of the Ohio. Along the way, we'll be joined by howling wolves and dancing Indians. Grandmother will tell us why all the animals left Lenape land. Charles Dickens will reflect on his steamboat trip down the Ohio. And, we'll visit an Indian burial mound that was carried away piece by piece until it is no more. Marti Donovan, who lives with many animals, brings us Grandmother's wisdom. This is a self-guided audio tour. Please download the tour through the VoiceMap App in a wifi zone for full offline accessibility.

Eastbound Pennsylvania Turnpike: End boredom with part 3 of an audio drive

Eastbound Pennsylvania Turnpike: End boredom with part 3 of an audio drive

This self-guided GPS audio tour is Part 3 of a four-part eastbound Pennsylvania Turnpike series that eliminates highway boredom. It tells incredible prehistoric tales of ancient Indians who once walked this trail and the dramas that unfolded as Indians and European settlers collide. This part of the series begins at the Sideling Hill travel plaza. It continues over and under wilderness ridges before levelling off and crossing the broad Susquehanna River Valley. By the time you reach the end at the Highspire travel plaza, you also will have reached a new understanding about life here centuries ago. We'll hear the story of Tree Worm and his controlling mother-in-law. We'll learn why a tribe was called the Hemp People. Do you like Indian Summers? The people who coined the term absolutely dreaded them. I'll tell you why. We'll learn to speak a little Seneca, and get the story on a boarding school that served as the model for turning Indians into "true civilized Americans."

Eastbound Pennsylvania Turnpike: End boredom with part 2 of an audio drive

Eastbound Pennsylvania Turnpike: End boredom with part 2 of an audio drive

This self-guided GPS audio tour is Part 2 of a four-part eastbound Pennsylvania Turnpike series that eliminates highway boredom. It tells incredible prehistoric tales of ancient Indians who once walked the Turnpike route. You'll hear compelling historic dramas unfold of when Indian and European cultures collided. This part of the tour begins at the Somerset travel plaza, a summit of the Allegheny Mountains. It ends at the Sideling Hill travel plaza. Along the way, you'll learn the origins of fire. We'll explore the problems of firewater and how they caused George Washington to lead troops here. You'll hear Indian legends of the Underworld, and how not to lower yourself over a cliff. Just for good measure, we'll talk to a Seneca woman camped along the trail -- in her language. You will reach a new understanding about life and death here centuries ago. I guarantee that! And, in the bargain, your Turnpike trip will seem much shorter.
