“In the course of a man’s life, something comes along that stirs his soul.For the past 65 years, my source of inspiration has been Eden Hill.”
Wallace A. (“Bill”) Riley 1917 – 2007 Founding Board Member, Eden Hill Conservancy
Eden Hill is located in Spruce Creek township, Huntingdon County, PA.The area was settled by Robert Stewart, an Irish immigrant, in 1793.The Stewart family named the area “Eden Hill” due to the abundance of wild game, forestland, and streams populating the area.Located along the Little Juniata River, the area is a popular site for hunting and fishing and contains several farms and wonderful scenic views.With interest in Huntingdon County increasing as a site for development, established, trusted, community-based groups such as Eden Hill Conservancy are more important than ever in ensuring that our most precious local lands and scenery are identified and protected.
Eden Hill Conservancy’s activities encompass conservation, education, preservation, and research, all of which are focused on Eden Hill and the Little Juniata watershed.
The conservancy’s activities are overseen by an all-volunteer board of directors.
