Oops. Seems Charles II gave part of out county not only to William Penn but to Connecticut, too! It led to a series of battles called the Penamite Wars, which eventually secured the land for Pennsylvania. When you see our scenic Susquehanna River or walk our Endless Mountains, you'll know why this land was coveted. It still is. You can retrace Sullivan's March, marvel at our architecture or retreat to our quaint small towns. Or just relax by a clear mountain stream. As you travel Route 6, plan a stay in Wyoming County.
