South Williamsport Area Historical Collection is dedicated to preserving and sharing the historic legacy and rich cultural heritage of the residents, events, organizations, landmarks and legends of the combined communities of South Williamsport Borough, DuBoistown, Nisbet, and Armstrong Township

The South Williamsport Area Historical Collection formed June 28, 2018, with founding members Nancy Lundquist Baumgartner, Chuck Luppert, Margie Bower Plotts, and Georgie Stroup Ulrich. The project is facilitated by Robin Van Auken of Hands on Heritage.

The focus of the project is Storytelling, which enables people to focus on the most important aspects of their community — the people, both past and present, who helped build their hometown. The acknowledgement and acceptance of these stories creates a sense of shared belonging, leading to renewed engagement on social, cultural, and economic levels.

By connecting with and caring about your neighbors, our community can build a foundation of hope that leads to improved decision-making and relationship-building, resulting in a town everyone loves, and where everyone wants to live. People care for what they love. Our goal is to make them love their hometown.
