Lewisburg is a borough in Union County, United States,30 miles south by southeast of Williamsport and 60 miles north of Harrisburg. In the past, it was the center for a fertile grain. The population was 5,620 at the 2000 census and it is the county seat of Union County. Located in central Pennsylvania, on the West Branch Susquehanna River and it is home to Bucknell University and is near the Lewisburg Federal Penitentiary. Its 19th-century downtown is on the National Register of Historic Places, Lewisburg is the principal city of the Lewisburg, PA Micropolitan Statistical Area, and is part of the larger Bloomsburg-Berwick-Sunbury, PA Combined Statistical Area. Lewisburg was founded in 1785 by Ludwig Derr, a settler of the area, Derr had purchased several tracts of land from the William Penn family and other neighboring land owners, the largest of which was known as The Prescott. Having been on the land for such a time, Derr had befriended the local Native Americans of the area. Subsequently, in 1784, he worked with Samuel Weiser to lay out his combined land tracts, the name was changed to Lewisburgh when Union County was separated from Snyder County.
Much has been considered regarding how the name changed from Derrstown to Lewisburg, the most likely truth is that Derrs first name Ludwig translated into English as Louis but, being of German descent, it was spelled Lewis. Later, after Derrs death, the traditional Germanic burgh was appended to his first name to create Lewisburgh, note, U. S. Postal Service records contradict this story. The post office was named Lewisburgh when it was established in 1796, in 1893, the street names that run east and west are a local urban mystery. St. George, St. Catherine, and St. Louis etc. appear to be named for saints, since Derr was a Lutheran, and did not pay homage to Catholic saints, this is unlikely. George was Ludwigs son, his wife Catherine and Ludwig/Lewis himself, the other original street names that still exist are St. John, St. Mary and St. Anthony, which are probably the names of other children from families with whom Derrs own family were friends. However, there is an indication that Derr had a daughter named Mary, however, the premise is further supported by the notion that the German word for street is Strasse.
At the time, street names were pronounced as Strasse Mary or Strasse George, when signs were made to note the street names, the abbreviation for Strasse was allowed to remain, but the US/English abbreviation was redundantly added to the signs. The second mystery surrounding Lewisburg is the disappearance of its founder Ludwig Derr, after selling several lots of land, Derr set off for Philadelphia to sell additional lots. Shortly after arriving, records some of his lots had sold. However, Ludwig Derr simply disappears from history in that city, Derrs son George went to Philadelphia to search for his father, but returned a short time later, unsuccessful
