Millersburg is a railroad town and a river town whose location has historically afforded it many economic and cultural opportunities. At one point in time much of the locally mined coal flowed through Millersburg on its way to market. The Lykens Valley Railroad connected the mines to the Wiconisco Canal and the Pennsylvania Railroad. Present Day MYO Park is located where coal was transferred to canal boats or coal cars. The remnants of the canal have been transformed into a natural area and trail. Another preserved form of bygone transportation to grace the Millersburg riverfront is the oldest active wooden stern wheel ferryboat in the country. In 2006 the Ferry Boat system joined the Millersburg’s Queen Anne style passenger railroad station on the National Historic Register.
