Lycoming County Heritage Plan
The Lycoming County Department of Planning & Community Development is updating the County’s historic Preservation Plan, last completed in 1974. The update, the Lycoming County Heritage Plan, will identify historic resources in the county. A historic resource can be any building, site, structure, or district over 50 years old that is associated with a distinct architectural style, event, architect, and/or person or is an important local connection to the past.
Help identify sites for inclusion in the Heritage Plan and share your thoughts on how to preserve the County’s important cultural and heritage resources. Please take our survey today!
Lycoming County Historic Structures Survey (2015)
In 2015, the County of Lycoming completed historic structure surveys for sites in Jersey Shore, Montgomery, Muncy Borough, and Williamsport in order to begin to review, refine, and amend the county’s1971 inventory of historic sites and landmarks. The resulting reports are initial assessments of the County's historic resources and will guide the development of an updated, county-wide historic resource inventory.
