Created in March 1804 from a small portion of Lycoming County,
Jefferson County was named for Thomas Jefferson who was
President of the United States at the time. Brookville, named for
the numerous brooks and streams in the vicinity, was chosen as
the county seat for its central location at the time (today it is
located in the northern part of the county since a portion of the county was split off to form Forest County in 1848).

Punxsutawney- home of the famous groundhog
German tradition holds that if the sun comes out on Candlemas, the precursor to Groundhog Day, the hedgehog (or badger) will see its shadow and six more weeks of winter will follow. When German settlers came to Pennsylvania they continued this tradition, using groundhogs instead of hedgehogs to predict the weather.
