Scranton wasn’t always known as home of “The Office.” Incorporated in 1866, Scranton is named in honor of George W. and Seldon Scranton, who founded what became the Lackawanna Iron and Coal Company in 1840. By the late 1880s, Scranton was one of the nation’s leading industrial centers, earning the title of “Anthracite Capital of the World.” And later, an important center of the rising labor movement of the early 20th century.
Today, with a population of about 75,000, Scranton is now home to a growing downtown business district and several colleges and universities. With plenty of outdoor activities, a vibrant arts community and a diverse population, you’ll have every opportunity to honor the city’s rich past while progressing into the future.
