From the 1840's until c1912, thousands of county rafts floated billions of board feet of timber to mills in Lock Haven, Williamsport and Marietta. On March 14, 1938, a reenactment "Last Raft" left a traditional assembly point at Charlie McGee's Landing near here, bound for Harrisburg. On March 20 the raft struck a Muncy bridge pier and 7 lives were lost including Raftsman Harry Conner.
