Montoursville, PA, a village at the mouth of Loyalsock Creek on the West Branch Susquehanna River, was an important stopping point for the Moravian missionaries who were spreading the gospel throughout the wilderness of Pennsylvania during the 1740s. This site was formerly the Native American Village of Ostonwakin. Today this river community has a vibrant commerce sector. One can pick-up a fresh pastry from the bakery, buy some camping gear at the camping supply store or rent a canoe from the outfitter all along Broad Street, Montoursville's main street. Old farm machines come to life at the Annual Loyalsock Valley Early Days. See how it was done years ago as tractors, steam engines and antique cars strut their stuff. Riverfront Park is a place where history lives in nature and you can enjoy a recreational facility. There are bike and walking paths, a picnic pavilion, a multi-purpose field and a boat dock. Take a self guided tour of Canfield Island.
