The Susquehanna River is a permanent presence.
We each only occupy the land for a short time -- arriving, living our lives, and passing on.
Though its presence is permanent, the river and its surroundings have changed drastically over thousands
During the 12,000 years since the First People arrived at the river and began utilizing its
resources, countless generations adapted to a landscape slowly changing from Ice Age tundra to Penn’s Woods.
So great is the legacy of its early Peoples that the Lower Susquehanna River is often referred to as the heart
of archaeology in Pennsylvania.
It is truly a unique place to tell the fascinating story of our changing
earth and Man’s adaptation to it.
The pages of this website are dedicated to the legacy of the
lower Susquehanna River, its environs, and the people who have called it home.
