evil Indian Sorcerer, whose remains turned into searing
sandflies or ponksads after his body burned to purify the area.
The Indians then named the area “Ponksaduteney”, or as we
know it today Punxsutawney.
As the town thrived, mining the high-grade soft coal in the
surrounding region supplied railroads and factories with an
energy source. Factories built in the area included glassworks,
foundries, ironworks, and machine shops. Farmland
surrounding the town grew the organic resources for flour, feed,
and silk mills.
Celebrating traditions brought over from Europe; in 1887, the
town established the Ground Hog club to celebrate Candlemas.
This club’s mascot “Punxsutawney Phil” has become the town’s
most famous resident. This charming prognosticator wakes up
early from his burrow on Groundhog Day, February 2 to
forecast the weather annually to his admiring fans, who wait
with anticipation for his prediction at Gobbler’s Knob.
After you enjoy your walk or bike through the weather capital of
the world, take your time to visit the Weather Discovery Center
