Lock Haven, Pennsylvania

The city of '''Lock Haven''' is the county seat of Clinton County (Clinton County, Pennsylvania), in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania. Located near the confluence of the West Branch Susquehanna River and Bald Eagle Creek (Bald Eagle Creek (West Branch Susquehanna River)), it is the principal city of the Lock Haven, Pennsylvania, micropolitan statistical area (United States micropolitan area), itself part of the Williamsport (Williamsport, Pennsylvania)–Lock Haven combined statistical area. At the 2010 census (2010 United States Census), Lock Haven's population was 9,772.

Built on a site long favored by pre-European peoples, Lock Haven began in 1833 as a timber town and a haven for loggers, boatmen, and other travelers on the river or the West Branch Canal (Pennsylvania Canal (West Branch Division)). Resource extraction and efficient transportation financed much of the city's growth through the end of the 19th century. In the 20th century, a light-aircraft (light aircraft) factory, a college, and a paper mill, along with many smaller enterprises, drove the economy. Frequent floods, especially in 1972, damaged local industry and led to a high rate of unemployment in the 1980s.

The city has three sites on the National Register of Historic Places—Memorial Park Site, a significant pre-European archaeological find; Heisey House, a Victorian-era (Victorian era) museum; and Water Street District, an area with a mix of 19th- and 20th-century architecture. A levee, completed in 1995, protects the city from further flooding. While industry remains important to the city, about a third of Lock Haven's workforce is employed in education, health care, or social services.
