Arisbe today (view from the Southeast)

On 10 September 1998 the National Park Service held an open house to celebrate the completion of a four-year renovation of Arisbe. Although not a restoration, the Park Service attempted to maintain the character of Peirce's long-time home. Arisbe is now the home of the Research and Resource Planning Division of the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. It is a tribute to Peirce that his home is the site of scientific work. Although no part of Peirce's home was reserved for a museum or memorial, visitors will be welcomed. Perhaps in the future the conference room, which occupies the place of Peirce's study, can be restored and used for Peirce Society gatherings.
