Every Town a Treasure: Mifflinburg

Settled in the late 1700s by German immigrants, the borough was initially two villages: Elias Youngman's town at the west end and George Rote's town on the east. Early houses were log and chink construction. Youngmanstown and Rotestown merged in 1827, renamed in honor of the first governor of Pennsylvania, Thomas Mifflin. There is a bend in the streets where the two towns meet.

The story of Milton revolves around its industrial heritage and the people who have met the challenge of keeping the historic town moving forward.  The narrative is preserved in the diverse architectural styles of its Front Street homes and Post Office, its Historic Downtown Walking Tour, and its new library at Rose Hill.  Façade murals bring history to life, and buildings that survived fire and flood have been refurbished to house modern enterprises and a Model Train Museum.

Every Town a Treasure: Mount Carmel

Every Town a Treasure: Mount Carmel

Owing to the rich deposits of anthracite coal under and surrounding Mount Carmel, coal mining began in the late 1840s and continues on a smaller scale to this day. In 1891, nine coal mining operations were located in the vicinity. Three railroads, the Pennsylvania, the Lehigh Valley and the Reading, passed through the community linking it to the great urban centers of the East and the West. Coal was shipped in both directions as the nation became dependent on coal for both industrial and domestic uses until the boom ended in the early 1950s.

Like many communities in the Susquehanna River Valley, Selinsgrove suffered from major fires in 1872 and 1874. The razed wooden structures were replaced-mainly by brick buildings-in many instances. Today, many of those buildings are still in use and house some of the town's most significant and important businesses, shops, and restaurants.

Native Paths Driving Tour

Native Paths Driving Tour

 Sego! (Greetings)

Welcome to Otzinachson, the West Branch of the Susquehanna River. 270 years ago, during the colonial period, this place was on the southern edge of Iroquoia.  It was here that Native Americans, colonists, and Europeans came together to trade, negotiate, and live. 

This tour will take you along the Native paths that formed arteries of exchange, communication, hunting, and war for Native peoples for centuries before the arrival of the European settlers.

As Bucknell University Professor Katie Faull sought to uncover the long-buried story of Moravian settlers in the Susquehanna River Valley, again and again she was struck by the stunning natural beauty and historical significance unknown to most visitors to the area.
