While you’re here, explore our 1000+ acres of hills, fields, streams, ponds, trails, barns, and trees. Because we are nestled in a cove in the forested mountains of central Pennsylvania and a bit off the beaten path, the pace around here is slow making the outdoors a tranquil place for reflection or down time. Several historic structures dating to the 1800s dot the landscape. In fact, the White Sulphur Spring, which gives the conference center its name, was frequented by the Shawnee Indians long before settlers came to the cove in which it is located. A log tavern was built in the mid-1700s near the site of Buckingham Field. It was originally used as a way station for drovers traveling the packers’ trail along the crest of Will’s Mountain from Bedford village. In later years, the building was expanded and refurbished for guests coming to “take the waters” at the spring.
