Williamsport- The Thomas T. Taber Museum of the Lycoming County Historical Society will be hosting Brian Fagnano, founder and coordinator of Lycoming Joy and Memories, at our Society Program on Sunday, May 19, 2024, at 2pm in our Community Room. The lecture, sponsored by Van Campen Motors, is free and open to the public.

Lycoming Joy & Memories is a Facebook group founded by Fagnano in April of 2018. The online group is dedicated to the light-hearted history and images of Lycoming County. The group currently has 18,500 members who enjoy the conversation and images about our local history. Many group members also enjoy sharing images that help to tell their own family’s stories from yesteryear.

Fagnano, a teacher and life-long resident of Lycoming County, has been asked to share some of those vintage images and light-hearted moments during the Society Program. If you are interested in learning a bit about local history, please consider attending this event.

As this is our first Society Program of the season, admission to the museum will be free. The third Sunday of each month, May through October, is free admission day. Located at 858 West Fourth Street, Williamsport, the Thomas T. Taber Museum of the Lycoming County Historical Society provides a history of the region with information about Native American culture, frontier exploration, the development of the Pennsylvania canal, immigration during the 19th century, and the logging and lumbering era of the 19th century. The Taber Museum also houses the world-class Larue Shempp Model Train Collection.
