History & History Related Items

"From the late 1790s until 1826, Jersey Shore officially was called Waynesburg, located on the north side of the Susquehanna, west of Williamsport. During this time, many settlers arrived from eastern New Jersey, and over the years more and more Jersey folk descended upon the Waynesburg area. The locals on the opposite side of the river poked fun at the newcomers and started calling the Waynesburg shore "the Jersey shore." The new name started appearing on maps around 1826"
