Welcome to Preservation Williamsport
It is a great time for a stroll through Williamsport’s historic district. It is a veritable treasure of impressive Victorian mansions. On any given day, you’ll see tourists taking pictures as they wander through the neighborhood.
Something wonderful is happening here. You’ll see it everywhere. Victorian mansions are being brought back to life through painstaking renovations and restorations. Gardens and parks, dormant for so many years, also are being brought back to their original splendor and the neighborhoods are adorned with beautiful new Victorian period street lamps and hanging baskets cascading with flowers.
The world is starting to notice. Victorian Homes Magazine featured five exceptional Williamsport Victorian mansions recently. The New York Times dropped by for a day trip in 2007, highlighting Millionaires Row and Preservation Williamsport in its Travel Section.
You’ll soon consider that the key to Williamsport’s future lies right here in its past. Showcasing our historic district attracts tourists and tourism dollars to Williamsport.
We’re a nonprofit group called Preservation Williamsport, and it is our goal not only to preserve and protect Williamsport’s architectural heritage, but to increase preservation awareness. We invite you to join this exciting cause.
We’ve experienced steady progress in our efforts to raise funds for the restoration and maintenance of the Rowley House Museum at 707 West Fourth Street, and the community response has been outstanding. Our goal is to continue to raise sufficient monies to continue with the restoration process, repay our mortgage and fund operations. Visitors to the museum are awestruck by the beauty of the mansion and their comments are always the same: “We have seen a lot of Victorian houses, but none as beautiful as this!”
Your membership dollars will assist with the continued restoration of a magnificent piece of Williamsport’s history while demonstrating your commitment to support an historic legacy within our community. A membership application may be obtained from Preservation Williamsport, 960 W. Third St., Williamsport, PA 17701 (570 323 8080) or from this website.
