History lives on in the bed and breakfasts of Tioga County. The Old Wellsboro Inn, built in 1821 as a stagecoach stop and tavern for travelers passing through the area, continues to welcome travelers ready to relax and enjoy the comforts of this charming inn. Located along a lovely gas-lit boulevard in Wellsboro, the Packer House Inn was originally the home of Dr. Nelson Packer, a renowned Civil War surgeon and his family distinguished and generous philanthropists. The innkeepers at each of these historic B&Bs offer wonderfully delicious, full breakfasts, and both properties provide easy access to the PA Grand Canyon!

History buffs will delight in the circa 1714 Morgan Hughes Homestead in Towamencin Township, Montgomery County. Once owned by the Morgan family (as in J.P. Morgan), the homestead has ties to other well-known families including the American folk hero, Daniel Boone. The homestead’s main house and barn were built around 1714 with fieldstone and each feature many of the original rafters and flooring, while numerous doors and “six-over-nine” windows amazingly still have their original, handmade glass and hardware! Visitors have the choice of rooms in the original Manor House that offer the look and feel of the 1700s but with all the modern amenities, or the more modern Pool Suites.
