“chronicling the history of our region”
The Thomas T. Taber Museum of the Lycoming County Historical Society chronicles the history of our region from American Indian occupation through 20th century industry and life. Exhibits include an American Indian gallery, a Fine and Decorative Arts gallery, 19th century period rooms, and the Shempp Model Train exhibit, featuring over 300 toy trains. The Art Gallery exhibition integrates three art collections, the Taber Museum’s general collection, the John Sloan Art Collection, donated to the Taber Museum by Helen Farr Sloan in 1976, and the Park Retirement Home collection, currently on extended loan to the museum. The exhibit showcases artworks dating from the late 18th century into the 20th century, including portraiture, landscapes, still lifes, prints, and folk art. Artists featured include John Sloan and his contemporaries, 19th century still life painter Severin Roesen, Lycoming County natives John Wesley Little and Frances Tipton Hunter, 19th century fraktur painter Henry Young, and early American limner Jacob Maentel.
