PLANET SMETHPORT made history as the world’s very first, original, virtual historical geography walking tour built and designed for the World Wide Web.
Welcome to THE DAILY PLANET:
Our new MORE INTERACTIVE, FaceBook portal site to coordinate with our original Planet Smethport Website
THANK YOU for stopping by and checking out the progress on this GIANT project. We are building an immense historical puzzle in which we are fitting vintage photos, post cards, biographies, geographies, histories, newspaper clippings, personal histories & interviews, obituaries, artifacts, & memorabilia all together to form huge virtual online walking tour of magnificent McKean County & Smethport area. The pieces do not come in a box. They are hidden in attics, shoe boxes, albums, and, of course, in our local museums. It is our job to find them and put them back together to built this GIANT PUZZLE! IT'S A GIANT "JIG-SAW" PUZZLE & THE PIECES ARE HIDDEN!
So why the name Planet Smethport? Smethport was originally the economic engine of the McKean County region and the surrounding towns & villages were the “moon” the revolved around the economic Planet Smethport.
