Wordless/Wordful/Outdoor Wednesday: Lewisburg, PA

Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, is a charming place with a downtown that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Famous because of the prestigious Bucknell University, the town is nestled on the banks of the Susquehanna River.

There is a converted and restored woolen mill that contains 125 shops. The downtown movie theater is a single screen art deco palace.

I didn't have much time to investigate the town, although I did manage to visit a bookshop! I hope to go back one day!

  2. I have been there!
    The home of Bucknell University and the Lewisburg Freral Prison.
    And I was there to visit neither!

    LOVE that red door.

  4. I wasn't good enough at Math to get in a school like Bucknell, and so far I haven't been to prison yet. I did drive by both Bucknell and the Prison, though.
