Situated just south of the state border with New York, Sayre, Pennsylvania is located along the Susquehanna River in the scenic Penn-York Valley that contains Sayre and neighboring towns, or just simply, The Valley. Borne of an idea of a Waverly, New York bank president by the name of Howard Elmer, in 1869, Sayre was built on farmland in an area that was once called Pine Plains. Sayre blossomed with the arrival of the Lehigh Valley Railroad to the area, and you can still see vestiges of the town's railroading history today. Owing to the connection with the railroad, Sayre was even named after a railroad president and superintendent by the name of Robert H. Sayre. Today, Sayre is a charming town worth exploring. With this in mind, I explored the town by foot and got to see some neat things around Sayre.
