A Revitalizing City

Scranton started to grow as a city in 1849 after the establishment of Delaware, Lackawanna, and Western Railroad.

Electric lights were introduced for the first time in Scranton, rendering it the nickname of “the Electric City.” Similarly, the city also introduced the first ever electric cars in the United States as well.

Flooding of coal mines and closure of major railroads in the area resulted in the decline of transportation and other industries in the city. Since, 1980, the city has been taking different measures to revitalize the local economy by investing in different types of industries.

University of Scranton is obviously the largest education institute in the city. Similarly, government, retail trade, utilities, construction and defense contractors also form a strong economic base for the city.

A Growing Tourism Industry

Tourism industry in the city is making progress by leaps and bounds. There are many sites in the city preserving Scranton’s proud coal mining and industrial history. The steam train fans can have an experience of their lifetime by visiting Steamtown National Historic Site.

The site features some of the rarest steam engines in the world. Lackawanna Coal Mining Tour is also a memory to cherish for rest of your life.
