Towanda was incorporated as a borough in 1828, and was the center of the lumbering industry. The name comes from the native settlers who thought the area to be especially beautiful. Crossing the massive Susquehanna River bridge into Towanda, the traveler can see nearly every type of Victorian architecture of the 1800's in both homes as well as commercial & government buildings. Fortunately, Towanda escaped the devastating fires that ravaged many communities in the 1800's & buildings from as early as 1812 still stand. Many are on the National Register of Historic Buildings.
