Luzerne County was formed in 1786 from part of Northumberland
County. Although it is most noted for being located in the Anthracite coal mining area of Northeastern Pennsylvania,
it also has a rich history surrounding the canals and railroads that were instrumental in connecting east/west
and north/south in this great country of ours. The textile industry is also an integral part of the tapestry created
by our ancestors.
