    By 1908, the Philocorians were holding dances on Mondays throughout the summer at the park. The dances featured music by Boyles’ Orchestra. Admission to the weekly event was by invitation only; postcards were sent out by Secretary Clarence Hoch, and were required to be presented to gain entry to the dance. Most weeks, men had to pay for admission, whereas women were admitted free of charge. The price was $1.00. The last Philocorian dance of the season held at the park was on September 21 of that year.
    Jerome Pifer operated a carousel at the park around the same time.After the departure of Pifer’s carousel about 1910 , Columbia Park purchased a portable Allen Herschell model. The carousel featured three rows of 36 jumping horses and two chariots, along with a Wurl 146A organ. One source suggests a roller coaster may have operated at Columbia Park around 1915.
    In July of 1911, Nescopeck held its First Annual Village Picnic at the park.
    Columbia Park remains in use today as a public park, and is located on 4th Street, along the west shore of the Susquehanna River, just south of where Interstate 80 crosses.

    I've been dreaming about detecting here for quite some time. Definitely a no go at this point though. Big signs specifically prohibiting metal detecting.
