Long before its founding Williamsport was host to countless visitors from American Indian travelers, to fur traders, to settlers passing through. With its location along the Potomac River and the eventual opening of the Chesapeake and Ohio (C&O) Canal and Railroad, the Town’s history was built on welcoming travelers and guests.

The C&O Canal through Williamsport is home to many historical features such as Lock 44, The Lift Bridge, and the Conococheague Aqueduct. The canal towpath is excellent for cycling, running, walking and other recreational activities. The Town Center is home to many unique shops and boutiques. Browsing through these store fronts is more than just shopping; it is an experience you can’t find anywhere else.

The Town of Williamsport has all this and more. Come visit, and while you are here, be sure to take in one of their exciting events, experience the history of the town, or stop by to listen to one of their concerts. Whatever you do, you will soon discover that Williamsport is historic fun!
