Pick Your Passion - Offbeat Attractions

Austin Dam - It collapsed in 1911, but its concrete ruins still stand, a vivid reminder of the tragedy that occured there over a century ago.

Eliot Ness & the Hotel Crittenden - Eliot Ness penned "The Untouchables" right here in Coudersport in a local favorite hangout, The Hotel Crittenden.

Lady of Justice - Atop the Potter County Courthouse sits a most unique Lady of Justice - she's one of just six in the country to not wear a blindfold.

Coudersport Ice Mine
- Ice forms here in the summer, but it's no where to be found in the middle of winter.  After being closed for many years, the Coudersport Ice Mine has reopened.

Ole Bull's "Castle" - Norwegian violinist, Ole Bull, came to Potter County in the mid 1800s and sought to establish a Norwegian colony here. But farming was tough in the mountains and his fellow Norwegians retreated. You can visit his "castle" (which never came to fruition) at Ole Bull State Park.

Coudersport Caboose & Arboretum - The caboose, once a part of the Coudersport & Port Allegany Railroad, has been restored and is surrounded by an arboretum. It is located right on Route 6 in Coudersport.
