About Scranton

Scranton is a city located in northeastern Pennsylvania, known for its rich history and industrial heritage. The city was founded in 1856 and quickly became a major center for coal mining and steel production. It was during this time that Scranton became known as the "Electric City" for being one of the first cities in the United States to have electric streetcars.

One of the most notable features of Scranton is its extensive railroad history. The city was a hub for the Delaware, Lackawanna, and Western Railroad, which played a crucial role in the transportation of coal and other goods. The Scranton Union Station, built in 1908, is a beautiful example of Beaux-Arts architecture and served as a major transportation hub for the region. Today, the station is home to the Radisson Lackawanna Station Hotel and is a popular tourist attraction.

In addition to its railroad history, Scranton is also home to the Steamtown National Historic Site. This museum and heritage railroad preserves the history of steam locomotives and their role in the development of the United States. Visitors can explore the museum exhibits, take a ride on a historic train, and learn about the importance of freight transportation in the growth of the nation.
