The majority of the region's Amish community resides in the LeRaysville area. Their horse-drawn carriages are a common sight along the local roadways. Yesterday's charming architecture is reflected in the town's older homes and community bandstand. The area is known for excellent deer hunting, numerous other outdoor activities, the LeRaysville Cheese Factory, Gibbs Perennial Gardens, an annual Labor Day Celebration and Summer Bluegrass Music Festival.
LeRaysville was named after an early land baron, LeRay deChaumont, a French gentleman, who was sole owner of 86,000 acres of land which included large portions of present day Bradford, Susquehanna and Wyoming Counties.
