Oley Valley

The Oley Valley is among the most unique and picturesque regions in the Schuylkill River Heritage Area. The Valley is formed by the gentle rise of the Oley Hills and is dissected by the gently flowing Manatawny and Pine Creeks. Oley is home to some of the most significant 18th and 19th century Pennsylvania German farms to be found anywhere in the Commonwealth. Settled in the 1720s, many of the Valley’s current residents are descended from families who have been here for centuries. The Oley Valley is the birthplace of Daniel Boone, the Unitarian Universalist Church, and is one of the most agriculturally productive regions in Pennsylvania. Explore the historic inns, back country roads, and small shops and farm stands on your visit.
