This year is the 90th anniversary of the Clinton County Historical Society in Lock Haven, PA. The Historical Society is housed in the Heisey Museum, which is a brick Federal farmhouse built about 1831. It was used as a tavern for a while until Dr. William J. Henderson practiced medicine there in 1852. Two years later William Fearon, Jr bought the house and expanded it. The house went through several families until 1962 when Cora Frey Heisey donates it to the Clinton County Historical Society. After Agnes flooded the town in 1972, the Society restored the house as it was after the Civil War when Lock Haven was a booming lumber town.
Theses two pictures are of my girls years ago. We went up for the Annual Regatta and stopped in the Heisey Museum. They enjoyed it. I loved it.
