Additional Description: bottom photo-left
The B&S Railroad connected Galeton with the outside world. Visit the Pennsylvania Lumber Museum (located 10 miles west on US Route 6) to learn more about the rich history of the lumber industry in Pennsylvania.
Above, Pine Creek rushes past River Street during Galeton's last major log drive, which took place around 1900 (note outhouse tipped by floodwaters). Railways offered a more reliable way to ship logs to market.
