Folks familiar with the area’s history, however, know that the river’s current borders are far from where they once were. When the area’s first inhabitants, the Susquehannock Indians, ruled the land during the Paleo-Indian period (13,000 to 7,500 B.C.), the river’s flow was dramatically different. It didn’t cut its current shoreline until less than a century ago when the first of numerous dams were built.
