Columbia Crossing re-opened to the public in March 2016 under the management of Susquehanna Heritage
The Columbia Crossing River Trails Center at Columbia River Park re-opened to the public in March of 2016 under the management of Susquehanna Heritage, a regional non-profit group working to make the Susquehanna a national destination for heritage and outdoor travelers. The Borough has a three-year agreement with Susquehanna Heritage to manage Columbia Crossing as a visitor information and education center focused on the river. The group also owns and manages the Zimmerman Center for Heritage, an 18th century historic site across the river at Long Level, also open to the public. Susquehanna Heritage announced the hiring of Hope Byers as the Columbia Crossing Manager in 2016. A Columbia area native, Hope has earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in American History and worked for numerous museums and historic sites.
Columbia Crossing’s regular hours are Wednesday-Saturday 10am-4pm and Sunday Noon-4pm. Restrooms are open 7am-7pm every day. Expanded summer hours will start May 1st and continue through September. The Susquehanna Valley Chamber of Commerce is partnering with Susquehanna Heritage to provide volunteers to help serve visitors at the center. Columbia Crossing is available for rental by the public for meetings and events. More information will be available from Susquehanna Heritage by calling 717-449-5607.
