Jersey Shore, a small town with a seemingly misplaced name, was on the edge of the western frontier during Revolutionary War days, and those who settled in this area prior to 1784 found themselves outside the jurisdiction of both Great Britain and the commonwealth. Out of this was produced a Fair Play society, the Pine Creek Declaration of Independence, and something known as the Big Runaway. By 1800, a little village began to form along the banks of the west branch of the Susquehanna River. Over time, the West Branch Canal, lumbering, and a very large New York Central Railroad shop brought growth and prosperity to the area. Jersey Shore presents a visual story of the area through pictures taken by local photographers, including Joseph Mick, William H. Garman, and Jonathan Potter, dating from Civil War days to around 1930.
