1972 Floodwaters at Edgefield Court MotelHere’s a look back at Wyalusing’s Edgefield Court Motel during the devastating Hurricane Agnes Flood of 1972. The motel was owned by Stanley and Frances Frystak at the time, and those who remember the flood say the water reached an even higher level than when this photo was snapped. Today Peoples State Bank is located where the motel once was and although the site was raised somewhat before the bank was constructed, the recent flooding inundated the bank building, which is still closed, with PSB conducting business at its Church Street office.1972 Floodwaters at Edgefield Court MotelHere’s a look back at Wyalusing’s Edgefield Court Motel during the devastating Hurricane Agnes Flood of 1972.
