The name Muncy derives from the Munsee Native Americans who settled in the area. Located on the Susquehanna River in Lycoming County, Muncy traces its history back to John Brady in 1776. Early settlers endured Indian raids that sometimes resulting in the rescue of captives taken by the Native Americans. In 1842 the Abolition Riot again created a state of tumultuousness for the sleepy town.
Today, things move at a slower pace, and the town was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.
