The Nanticoke Indian Museum, formerly known as “Harmon School” where many of our tribal members received some of their early childhood education, is home to many artifacts that relate to our culture.
Closed in 1964 as a school and re-opened in 1984 as our museum, came about through many hours of hard work, dedicated and perseverance. The building having set idle for nearly 20 years was in desperate need of repairs. A committee was formed and the task of revitalizing the building began to take shape.
We are proud of our forefathers, their goals, dreams and dedication. Had it not been for them, we would not be able to afford visitors to our community the opportunity to stop in and learn the rich culture of the Nanticoke people.
The museum is listed on the National Historical Register.
