Celebrating 200 Years of History in 2020

Susquenita Middle School Quilt


Susquenita Middle School Quilt:

80 Gamblers Corner Road, Duncannon 

(Intersection of Route 274 and Gamblers Corner Road)


The top of the quilt depicts the Rockville Bridge in Marysville. Going
clockwise from the top, the right-side mountains wind around the
Appalachian Trail. The Doyle Hotel is depicted at the bottom, a frequent stop
for hikers on their cross country treks. On the left, the ferry represents the boot that crossed at the Clarks Ferry Bridge. Duncannon was a major hub for all transportation in the early days. Many traveling east to west in Central Pennsylvania went through Dunconnon. The large, center “X” figure is representative of a railroad crossing symbol and of the Pennsylvania RR tracks that run through the center of town.
