A Student Historian Award was presented to Anna Lee Hafer for her essay concerning an object within the museum. She chose to write on the Manor Hall Dollhouse. She is a student at Williamsport Area High School. A number of students responded to the LCHS essay contest, choosing items within the museum and placing them within the relevancy of today. Students chose to write about the following objects/areas of the museum included: a Corona typewriter, the canal system of Pennsylvania, the blacksmith shop, the Greek Revival Parlor, the One-Roomed Schoolhouse, and the telephone in our General Store.
