Lewisburg Lewisburg, PA
Lewisburg is a borough of Union County, Pennsylvania located right on the Susquehanna River. It was founded in 1784 by a settler named Ludwig Derr and became a center for commerce due to its location on the river. The water was used for logging and shipping, and the remains of old factories and other ancient stone structures still exist along the river banks today. A town of rich history, several locations within the town of Lewisburg even served as stopping points on the famous Underground Railroad.

Today the town is most known for being the college hub of Bucknell University. The immediate vicinity of Downtown Lewisburg has a number of shops, antiques, and restaurants, while Route 15 nearby has all the comforts of home with places like Walmart, Starbucks, Panera, Applebee's, and McDonald's. Outside of town, the area mostly consists of rolling hills and Central Pennsylvania farmland.
As far as history goes, Lewisburg's 19th-century downtown was recently placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Historic buildings of the area include the Slifer House Museum which is a beautifully preserved Victorian mansion, and the Packwood House Museum which once served as a tavern and inn. The Dale/Engle Walker House is yet another historic site-a preserved central Pennsylvania farm from 1787 that was once part of the Underground Railroad.

Bucknell University, of course, is the main attraction of the town. A private liberal arts college, the university consists of the College of Arts and Sciences, School of Management, and the College of Engineering. Its campus is beautifully laid out with red brick Georgian architecture, an iconic chapel, historic buildings, and continues to expand with new buildings every year. The university also hosts frequent events in sports, theater, and the arts.

Another unexpected feature of the area is the Lewisburg Federal Penitentiary. It is a high-security United States federal prison and has held inmates like the infamous Jimmy Hoffa, as well as John Gotti, boss of the Gambino Crime Family in New York City from 1985 to 1992.
Downtown Lewisburg is pretty much college town USA. Professors, graduate students, and other residents live in homes and apartments off the side streets, while Market Street lay dotted with restaurants, inns, and shops. The university's Barnes and Noble book store, the historic Campus Theater, and Bucknell's downtown art gallery also find their home in the downtown area. Hufnagle Park, between 5th and 6th streets, provides a nice place to relax on a bench and watch the ducks of Bull Run creek enjoy their day. The park also hosts several outdoor events throughout the year.

Bucknell University is host to innumerable events and activities throughout the year. Its Weis Center for the Performing Arts is a 1,200 seat performance hall that consistently hosts professional and campus music, dance, and theatre events, as well as lectures, convocations, and other functions. Sporting events, especially basketball, are highlights of the Bucknell University campus as well.

Shopping and antiquing are popular in the town of Lewisburg especially at the Roller Mills Marketplace and Street of Shops. Both hold warehouses of antiques from furniture and old barn supplies to ceramics, knick knacks, movies, books, camera paraphernalia, old posters, light fixtures, and musical instruments-just about anything used you can think of.

Winter State Park which has a beach, campgrounds, and a number of hiking trails for the outdoor explorers. Clyde Peeling's Reptiland is located just 15-20 minutes north for those looking for a kind of zoo experience, while Knoebels Amusement Park is worth the day trip to experience one of the best old-fashioned pay-as-you-go amusement parks in the nation.
