Susquehanna National Heritage Area is a regional non-profit organization and Congressionally-designated coordinating entity for America’s 55th National Heritage Area. We collaborate with local, state and national partners to connect people to the nationally important places and stories of Lancaster and York Counties in South Central Pennsylvania. Our work focuses on the cultural and natural resources of the Susquehanna River and the ribbon of scenic and historic landscapes and communities along its shores.
We are very pleased to announce that we will be conducting our 2022 River Discovery Tours aboard the historic Chief Uncas, a beautiful 55-foot wooden launch built in 1912 by the Electric Launch Company of Bayonne, NJ.
The Chief Uncas was built for Adolphus Busch, co-founder of the famous American beer company, to enjoy cruises at his summer estate on Otsego Lake in Cooperstown, NY – the very headwaters of the Susquehanna River. After cruising those headwaters for 109 years, next summer, the Chief Uncas will begin a new chapter in its life 400 miles downriver as Susquehanna National Heritage Area’s flagship tour boat!
