Hall of Farming, Crafts & Industry

The viewer is introduced to the Hall of Farming, Crafts and Industry with a display of Pennsylvania stoneware created within Lycoming County. In this gallery, visitors will enjoy viewing ingenious farm implements such as a butter churn powered by the family dog; textile tools; needlework and calligraphy; items used at home; beer and broom-making materials; and the intricacy of creating rickrack. Large recreations of a woodworking shop, a grist mill and a blacksmith shop show the importance of the local craftsman to life in the county.
