Pennsylvania:
Scranton

In 1840, the Scranton brothers arrived and found only five houses in the village. A new name was given to the settlement in 1845: Harrison, in honor of the president. Finally, in 1851, the name was changed to Scranton. It was incorporated as a city in 1866.

We visited Scranton on May 17, 2015 on our way to New York City.
