The McNett Country Band

Country and especially square dancing is the American traditional  and unique form of dancing.  Dating back to the beginnings of our country, influenced by the dance traditions of America’s early immigrants, the Saturday night dance was a way for the hard-working settlers to meet each other in a fun social setting.

Tickets are $20: traditional food of harvest soups, homemade bread and beverages are included in the admission ticket.  Beer and wine will be available.

Our Timeline of Clinton County History began in February.  New  additions are on display each month.  We began with 1839.  The current installment covers 1911 to 1945 with artifacts from WWI and WWII.  We have photographs of the ambulance corps and the the airmail planes from New York making their first stop in Lock Haven on the New York-Chicago route!
