Laceyville (Wyoming County)

Laceyville has the distinction of being the first town on the North Branch to be designated a Susquehanna Greenway River Town. This small quaint river town is one of the many great stops to make while exploring the North Branch Susquehanna River Water Trail. Laceyville is within the Endless Mountains Heritage Region and has its own boat access to the Susquehanna River. In the early 1800s, roads were built on the Indian trails and canals were built for transporting goods along the river. Railroads soon replaced these canals, and the Laceyville Rail Station helped the town grow into what it is today. When stopping in Laceyville, be sure to check out The Oldest House, built in the 1780s and thought to be one of the oldest frame dwellings of four northeastern PA counties. It is owned by Oldest House-Laceyville Area Historical Society and is now open for tours and special events.
