This is the place to learn some basics about the Rocks and the entire valley.The staff are knowledgeable and helpful. If you want to know about the local geology, early inhabitants, or rest swimming holes, talk to the staff.

The Discovery Center has interesting exhibits, a small gift shop, and large/clean restrooms. There is a spectacular view of Seneca Rocks and a nice walking path to the adjacent Sites Homestead. Worth a stop!
