The Montour Falls Library and Courthouse sit right next to one another. They appear to be of the same era. Located on Main St. and right around the corner from She-Qua-ga Falls. It's nice to stop by to view these great old buildings.

Travelling through the area and came across the library. Very quaint inside. It's small, but it was interesting to read on the history of Montour. Worth the visit.

We didn't venture inside, but stopped to snap a photo of the amazing architecture. This, and the neighbouring theater building are great finds in such a small town.

Enjoy the outside and then enter to see the beautiful windows and small town set up, be sure to ask to visit the Civil War collection and old documents areas. Spitting distance from She-Qua-Gua Falls.

Beautiful old building with lovely stained glass windows. Staffed by very pleasant, helpful young woman. Loved the civil war in a few pages in the back room. Glad we took the time to visit.
