In a museum that is well over a century old, history lessons come alive and they are as poignant as ever.
Nestled in between the Susquehanna and Chemung rivers in Athens, the Tioga Point Museum offers a local history lesson that will impress museum-goers of any generation. Enjoy learning about the history of Native Americans and their origins in Northeastern Pennsylvania. The artistry and heritage are on display with baskets, quillwork, and other artifacts from many early Pennsylvania tribes. Portraits of settlers from the Athens, PA-area are featured along with the historical books and writings of the Tidd Collection, including letters from George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, and other historical figures. For a geographic lesson, see the assortment of vintage maps of northeastern Pennsylvania in the Flower-Walker Map Collection.
