Grampian, PA – Roland Welker, Clearfield County native who won season 7 of History Channel’s Alone reality series, cut the ribbon at Bilger’s Rocks at the grand opening of a new replica of his famous Rock House.
Although that season of Alone aired more than a year ago, the show’s new home on Netflix has found new fans… including those in Clearfield County who noticed that Roland grew up in Shiloh, PA!
Roland Welker won the $1 million prize by surviving for 100 days in the Arctic with just 10 items given to him (including his trusty axe) to help build a shelter and survive alone in temperatures that dipped down to as low as -40 degrees. There was no support team or camera crew along with him.
Now locals in Clearfield County can get a small sense of what it was like for Roland Welker. Thirteen volunteers worked for more than 300 hours to build a replica at Bilger’s Rocks.
Bilger’s Rocks can be found at 1921 Bilgers Rocks Rd, Grampian, PA 16838.
