Towanda Water System – “The Between Years”
Presented by Elaine Engisch.

In 1891 Charles Goodhue from Springfield, Massachusetts, was instrumental in bringing pure water to Towanda. The company was sold in 1896 although it wasn’t until 1950 that the borough was able to purchase the water company. What changes, additions or adjustments were made during those years? Free admission. Donations accepted.
