My great grandfather came from there back in the 1800s. What is it like? Is it conservative, moderate or liberal? What are the people like? Does it have a geneaology center?

Williamsport has a tiny downtown core where the main employer is the medical center. Most of the neighborhoods are run down and there are a few high crime sections to avoid. Several vacant factories dot the city and surrounding area. Suburban strip-mall infill provides most of the shopping, hoteling and dining needs.

They were in the midst of a downtown revitalization project but I don't think those loans will survive the credit crisis.

This should provide some good information on Williamsport:

Hope this helps
