Triassic Park is now Closed!

We have sold the 14.9 acres so a new road can be put threw the park along the quarry. Our board thought it would be best to sell the property and relocate. The park is now closed. It is no longer opened to the public. The new owner is the Black Granite Village GP, Inc. 3441 St. Peters Road, St. Peters, PA.

French Creek Mines

The Institute for Biblical and Scientific Studies, a non-profit, tax-exempt organization, still has a great opportunity to save the French Creek Mines in St. Peters, PA from destruction by land developers. The French Creek Mines are famous for their unusual mineral specimens. We want to preserve and restore the mines. The mine shaft itself would remain buried. We would like to restore the old railroad station as a museum with mineral displays from these mines. The cost of the property is $85,000. We can obtain half of this money with easement grants, but we still need to raise at least another $40,000 before the property is sold to others. There may be some that could give a donation for a tax write off to help us save the mine, or could loan us some money. If you know anyone that might be interested in helping us out financially to save the French Creek Mines, please let me know. You can contact Dr. Meyers by e-mail at Pictures of the mines are at
