View of historic French Asylum from Rock Mount, 500 feet above the River. Roosevelt Highway, Near Towanda, Pa. The French Asylum was established by a group of French Royalists who fled from the Revolution in 1793. They built a town of some 50 houses and erected the largest log cabin that was ever built, calling it the Queen's House and hoping that the unfortunate Queen Antoinette might here find safety.
