Bushkill Falls Rd. at Unity House entrance, Bushkill, PA 18324 GET DIRECTIONS
A vacation and labor education retreat was operated here, 1919 - 1989, by the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union (ILGWU). Each year it hosted several thousand visitors - including union members, retirees, and public officials - and offered cultural events significant to the labor movement. The only workers' resort of its size in the U.S., it closed due to declining employment in the domestic apparel industry.
