Valley prepares for War

Today's article is from The Evening Times December 8th 1941 is the day after Pearl Harbor. How hard it must have been for the families waiting to here that their loved ones were safe from the attack. Three industries started on sabotage measures.....Lehigh Valley Railroad for transportation, Ingersoll Rand for machining tools, and Belle Knitting Corporation for making shirts for the Navy. Big changes would come to the valley after that fateful day.

The Tioga Point was founded in January 1895 as the Tioga Point Historical Society. The purpose of the museum as stated in the original incorporation was: "To collect and procure relics and records of local and general interest to the former and present inhabitants of Athens and vicinity; to collect and procure genealogical records of the first settlers and their descendants; and to provide proper care for, the preservation of the relics and records so collected by the maintenance of a museum where they are placed."  Over 120 years later, the Tioga Point Museum continues to live out that purpose.
