Peter Herdic Transportation Museum

 

Peter Herdic Transportation Museum
Come explore the rich traditions of the Susquehanna River Valley from the time of the Susquehannock Indian Tribe to today’s modern transportation systems and see how the Susquehanna River provided the means for Lycoming County’s explosive growth at the turn of the century. From the birch bark canoe to a fully restored GMC 1962 bus, and one of the only two remaining 1949 Pennsylvania Pullman Parlor cars. It is an interesting tour back in time.
