Packwood House Museum
Packwood House Museum is among the oldest log-built structures of its kind in Pennsylvania, originally constructed as a two-story log cabin between 1796 and 1799. As a tavern and hotel throughout much of the 19th century, the building served travelers in the Susquehanna Valley until 1886. In 1936 Edith Fetherston, a Lewisburg native and one of the first woman graduates of nearby Bucknell University, and her husband, John, purchased the 27-room building as a retirement home, and began to fill it with art and antiques from Pennsylvania and across the world. They named their home "Packwood" after a Fetherston family ancestral home in England.
