FLEE OR FACE THE GUILLOTINE!
This was the simple choice for loyalists of French King Louis XVI in 1793. And so it was that dozens of refugees came to this place called French Azilum on a horseshoe bend along the Susquehanna River in northeastern Pennsylvania. They lived here for 10 years until Napoleon Bonaparte, the Emperor, after the French Revolution, granted repatriation rights to citizens who had fled around the world to escape persecution.
Harboring the history of the refugees and their descendants is the French Azilum Historic Site.
