The Wissahickon's Doomsday Cult

The Wissahickon's Doomsday Cult

Tucked away in a remote section of Fairmount Park, you’ll find the stone framed entrance to a small cave. This enhanced structure, dug into the side of a hill, marks what is believed to be the 17th century home of America’s first doomsday cult. Johannes Kelpius and his followers made their home on the Wissahickon and prepared for the end of the world. So, join us in the Kelpius Cave if you want to survive the apocalypse.
