In the 1800s, Williamsport was the Lumber Capital of the World, with all the attendant wealth that implies. Today, visitors can tour the Millionaire's Row historic district by replica trolley. The seat of Lycoming County, Williamsport is located between the west branch of the Susquehanna River and Bald Eagle Mountain. The town is surrounded by more than 300,000 acres of state gamelands, making the area popular with hunters and outdoors enthusiasts. Indoors, the Community Arts Center produces cultural events and performances. Williamsport also hosts the Little League World Series every year; a museum pays homage to this competition for the championship of America's national pastime.
