Join in the Groundhog Day celebration and stay in a
Punxsutawney, PA bed and breakfast. Punxsutawney was originally a
campsite halfway between the Allegheny and Susquehanna rivers. It is located
on the earliest known trail to the East, the Shamokin path. The Indians called
the location, ‘Ponksaduteney’. In the mid 19th century
agriculture and lumbering flourished. Forests of oak, chestnut, beech, pine,
and hickory were cut and rafted to Pittsburgh. Mining and railroads were the
keys to the economy from the late 1800's to the 1940's. The Industrial growth
of Punxsutawney reached its zenith in the 1920's, and Punxsutawney was a
thriving small city until 1929 brought economic disaster. Groundhog Day began
on February 2nd, 1886 with a terse paragraph in The Punxsutawney Spirit, "
Today is Groundhog Day and up to the time of going to press, the beast has not
seen its shadow." The legendary first trek to Gobbler's Knob was
reportedly made the following year, and the rest is a colorful history.
You will be glad you chose a PA Mid-State Bed and
Breakfast rather than a typical hotel. The member Innkeepers are dedicated
to making your stay a memorable experience.
