Founded in 1892 by the Pennsylvania Chautauqua Society, Mt. Gretna is situated in wooded state protected game land.  Many of its picturesque cottages date back to the Edwardian era in which the town was founded.

The Mt. Gretna Playhouse has hosted performances since the early days of Mt. Gretna.  The original playhouse collapsed under the weight of snow in winter 1995.  Its successor, nestled among the trees and cottages, is the perfect home to Gretna Music’s summer series.
