The Oldest River In Pennsylvania Is A Beautiful Piece Of Living History

Pennsylvanians and water just go hand-in-hand. After all, no matter where we live in the state, we’re usually within driving distance of a lake, a pond, or a river. The water provides plenty for us to do, too, from boating and swimming to picnicking on the shore. But, have you ever stopped to think of the history behind your favorite lake or river, like the oldest river in Pennsylvania?
