      Did you throw any ducks off of the tower? 🙂

      Unfortunately for us the tower wasn’t open when we visited- between that and the soda fountain being closed we’re totally due for a re-visit.

      What is the deal with the ducks anyways? Between them and the mystery Bunny Dust I feel like that area is a big old heap o’ secret animals! Speaking of which, there was a giant chicken for sale down the street, I’ll have to post it so it can be added to the Roadside Galore Fiberglass Rooster Conspiracy, and add it to my “strange animals of the Duncannon area” list!

      First time reader of your blog (saw the website on a car @ Sledfest this past weekend) & I just have to say…amazing! I am going on a roadtrip this summer and your site will def. help me to find some neato stops along the way. I’m actually from Duncannon, PA & still live there with my husband. My great grandfather used to work in this sled factory when it was still making sleds. My husband & I frequent the Old Sled Work’s often, as evident in the last picture; that is our truck 🙂

        Becky! Thanks for swinging by RetroRoadmap – and that was in fact the “Retro-Roadmobile” you saw at the Sled Fest. Glad the sticker worked liked I hope it would! Duncannon seems like such a neat little place, we have to travel there more often. WendyVee from RoadsideWonders.net said there’s a tea room (The Garden Seat) down the road apiece – do you know if it’s still open?
        Let us know where you’re going on your road trip, and if I can help with any suggestions I’ll send’em your way. Have fun and safe travels!

          Hello again! Unfortunately, the The Garden Seat tea room is no longer open. It was run by an elderly couple and I believe it was the husband that passed away. His widow couldn’t handle it by herself, so they closed. Perhaps in the future their children will reopen it? I always wanted to go there but I just never got the chance.

          I’ll be going to Bar Harbor, ME this summer. Not sure of the exact route yet, but I know a major portion is on 95N. Thanks 🙂

        Thanks for the info on The Garden Seat, Becky. I wasn’t sure if they were still kicking or not.

        I’ve never been inside; but I was always curious about it … it always looks like a little storybook cottage 🙂

      The wax soda jerk is kinda spooky. If I walked up to him I MIGHT think he was real. LOL!!
