Like most Pennsylvania river towns, Muncy suffered great loss in the flood of 1889, which also devastated Johnstown. Another massive flood in 1894 sounded the death knell for the canal system. The railroad, which superseded the canal system throughout the United States, kept the local industry alive, although the port businesses disappeared.
Through vintage postcards, Muncy (PA) (Postcard History Series) depicts the varied past of this quiet town. Writer Robin Van Auken worked closely with Linda Poulton, editor of “Now and Then,” the historical society’s nationally recognized magazine of history, biography and genealogy, when creating the book. Poulton’s keen sense of history and her skill as a writer and editor guided all aspects of the book.
