The Commonwealth's first forestry school was established here at Mont Alto in 1903 and named the State Forest Academy in 1905. Among the first in the nation, it later merged with the Pennsylvania State University. Joseph T. Rothrock, the Commonwealth's first Forestry Commissioner, and Mira Lloyd Dock, noted activist and conservationist, were among its founders.
