Updating Pioneer Village

Maintainence and operation of the Harold Warp Pioneer Village has been turned over to the HWPV Fountation.  We are actively seeking donations and volunteers to continue to support the village for future generations.

The Harold Warp Pioneer Village Foundation

Our Mission

Pioneer Village is a publicly funded non-profit, self supporting educational foundation, open year round (except Christmas Day) from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with extended summer hours from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.  Pioneer Village is also one man’s dream come to life. The seed was planted when 20 year old Harold Warp left home in 1924, taking with him only a patent for a new kind of plastic and his determination. Since Mr. Warp founded Pioneer Village in 1953, over 6 million people have visited.
