To go along with Williamsport's Civil War preservation project, some changes will be made at the historic site known as Doubleday Hill, accessed at the end of West Salisbury Street. For almost 116 years, the brick mounts that held the Doubleday Hill cannons have stood as a place to mount the memorial tubes. For historical accuracy and preservation, they must be removed to accommodate the newly refurbished and remounted cannons that will be on display using period-correct carriages.
