What You'll Find Here

Fluck Hall, open by request, features a large collection of agricultural implements dating from the early 19th century to the present day.  Tractors, plows, reapers, binders, threshers and hand tools illustrate the great changes that have taken place in the agriculture of the area since it was first settled.

Fluck Hall was named for Lt. General Henry K. Fluck (1912-1989), Somerset County's highest ranking and most decorated serviceman.  General Fluck enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1928 and went on to command the famous 28th "Keystone" Division.  During his period of service he was awarded the Combat Infantry Badge, Bronze and Silver Stars, and Army Commendation Medal, among others.   General Fluck retired from the Army in 1972, and was a long-time member and valued supporter of the Somerset Historical Center and the Historical & Genealogical Society of Somerset County.
