Summary

The valleys of the Juniata River occupy the very heart of the state of Pennsylvania. This ecosystem is a substantial contributor to the great Chesapeake watershed that drains a major portion of the continent. Ancient Native American pathways along the Juniata gave way to an early turnpike and soon welcomed a canal. With much fanfare, the Pennsylvania Railroad chose the Juniata Valley as the choice route to unify the state. The land that provided iron, lead, and pure silica sand at the start of the Industrial Revolution today provides hiking trails. The waterways that once hauled grain to market are now a destination for millions each year seeking relaxation and recreation. Through vintage photographs and images culled from albums and attics, Juniata's River Valleys lends a glimpse at life in earlier times along one of America's most spectacular waterways.
