Share Your Story About the Bordner Cabin


bulletArmar's former students who have gotten involved with the cabin:  Terry Rhen, electricity; Jim Rank, sandblasting and broom holder; Gary Wolfe provided an initialed picture of Armar from his yearbook.
bullet Armar's black snake lived in the center rafter of the loft.  I didn’t have my camera along but I did appreciate her being there.  He always had black snakes around as they kept the mice away.  I know when the Boy Scouts camped in the building the highlight of the evening was usually the black snake sighting in the rafters above their heads…  Greta Rank
bulletWith Historical Society President Earl Leiby, I visited Armar Bordner in the late 1980's to interview him for the PA Scenic Rivers program.  In addition to the falls and cabin, what I remembered the most was an oxen yoke light hanging from the center rafter.  Jo Ellen Litz
