Marietta

Established in 1863, Marietta sits slightly back of the banks of the Susquehanna River. Before the flood of 1972, the town had begun to show its age. Buildings were looking worn and no-one seemed to care much; but then, no one had much money. To make matters worse, the river rose and nearly drowned the town. The damage and destruction from the flood was horrendous, but, it seems that something good can come out of something bad. When the government stepped in with much needed dollars to put the town back on its feet, Marietta's residents turned their dilapidated buildings into historical treasures outside and inside. Store-fronts sparkle with fresh paint and bright trim; museums hum with beautiful music boxes; antique shops bulge with dust- free relics; and many private homes are unique B & B's. Like the Noble House, it is incredibly furnished with heirloom family antiques. At Christmas time, Marietta's residents throw open their doors to the public in a spicy and heart-warming candle-lit welcome. To be sure, this simple little ex-lumber town is ready for company.
