QUESTION:  WHY IS WILLIAMSPORT CALLED WILLIAMSPORT?

ANSWER:  No one knows for certain.

The prevaling theory that seems to have gained the widest acceptance over the years is that Judge WILLIAM Hepburn (known as the Father of Lycoming County), named the city for himself.

Williamsport became a borough in 1806 and then in 1866 attained a 3rd Class City status and is the county seat.

Learn more about WILLIAM Hepburn and Williamsport, PA history by going on-line (pa.uslandrecords.com) to look at some of the old deeds and corresponding history associated with them.
