Moved by the belief that the large community gathered each summer at Buck Hill Falls offers a fertile field in which to stimulate thought, the Foxhowe Association declares its objects to be: to present and to discuss, largely from the viewpoint of the Society of Friends, some of the problems arising from human relationships, in an atmosphere of relaxation, cheerfulness and goodwill.
Foxhowe is a summer series of lectures, performances and events that enlighten the mind and spirit, all events are free and open to the public. Foxhowe is centered in the settlement of Buck Hill Falls and we encourage all our neighbors to come join us.
Foxhowe was founded on the Quaker tenet of self-betterment: that one must continue to learn and be enlightened both spiritually and intellectually. The Board of Trustees of Foxhowe honors this legacy by presenting great thinkers of our time to the greater Buck Hill community.
The name Foxhowe is a compound of George Fox, the founder of the Quaker faith, and Howe, old English for hill. Just as George Fox was enlightened upon a hill in England in the 17th century, Buck Hill’s forebears wished to continue their spiritual and intellectual journeys in the mountains of Pennsylvania.
We hope you share this desire to enrich our community by joining us for our upcoming calendar of programs. Though all programs are free to all, we ask that you give what you can to help perpetuate our founding principle of enlightenment.
