Snyder County was created in 1855 out of Union County. The name honors Simon Snyder, three-term governor of Pennsylvania (1808-1817). He made his home in Selinsgrove. Middleburg, the county seat, was incorporated in 1864. Selinsgrove is the largest municipality and the home of Susquehanna University. The county was the scene of the Penns Creek Massacre in 1755.
