Montgomery locals June 20, 2018
Did you know that our local stretch of Route 15 was originally an
Indian footpath? As it turns out, there are other major roads in
Lycoming County that share that same heritage. To hear all of the
details of the history of these roads, be sure to attend the Montgomery
Area Historical Society’s Third Thursday presentation on June 21st at
6:30 pm in the Adam Room. Jim Dunn will be making a presentation about
his research into the footpaths that were established by the Indians.
When the talk is over there will be an Open House so you can have the
opportunity to see some wonderfully vivid pieces of Montgomery’s past.
Peruse the old photos and curiosities that have shaped our community in
the last century and a half. Perhaps you’ll discover something about
your own family’s history.
The Adam Room is located in the old Adams’ Print Shop on Houston
Avenue, just below the Montgomery Area Public Library. The windows that
once posted the school’s homeroom assignments at the end of every summer
are now filled with displays about local history that are changed often.
All Historical Society Events are free and open to the public. If you
aren’t a member, you may want to consider becoming one. The membership
fee is ten dollars a year for an adult, a small price to pay to preserve
the history of our community for future generations.
THOT “Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of
us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total; of
all those acts will be written the history of this generation.” Robert Kennedy
