Maple heritage, history, lore, and education is the main focus for the HGSSC's Taste and Tour experience at the Somerset Historical Center, where visitors can learn about maple sugaring techniques from the earliest records through the present day.

Somerset County has been the leading maple producing county in the state of Pennsylvania since the 19th century. Come learn about maple sugaring in the area from the earliest producers through the present day.
