The area that eventually became Scranton was originally settled in 1778 by Isaac Tripp, mostly as a demonstration that the area was actually safe for settling. The house he built, Tripp House, has been restored to how it would have looked after its 1812 renovation. For a time, the entire area was called Slocum Hollow, after Jonathan Slocum, the husband of Isaac’s daughter, Ruth.
Selden T. and George W. Scranton came later, and they built a nail mill which failed due to the poor quality of the local iron ore. Facing bankruptcy, they made their own opportunity. At the time, railroads were forced to depend on English companies for steel rails, since no American company could manage to produce them. Construction of the Erie railroad in New York had even been delayed because the English firms were already producing at capacity. The Scrantons, in a surprise move, successfully bid on the contract to supply the T-rails. After acquiring the contract, they had to figure out how to actually make rails, how to build the factories to produce them, and how to build a rail line of their own to transport the product to Erie. Their success in the bold enterprise put the Scrantons, and the city named after them, on the map.
By the end of the Civil War, the Lackawanna Iron & Steel Company had produced more iron than any other place in the country. By 1888, the Lackawanna furnaces made more than 125,000 tons of pig iron, used to make train rails and other items. Today, the remnants of the massive operation of the Scranton family’s Lackawanna Iron & Steel Company are preserved as The Scranton Iron Furnaces historic site.
Just a couple of blocks away from the Furnaces is the Steamtown National Historic Site, featuring a train museum preserving knowledge of the steam train era. Built at a real train yard of the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad, Steamtown is comprised of thirteen railroad buildings, dating from 1865 to 1937. The original buildings represent the full spectrum of the steam era train industry. The museum itself is located inside a reconstruction of the original roundhouse and locomotive repair shops, with additions that make the area look much as it did in its heyday.
Coal mining is also a major part of Scranton’s history. At the Lackawanna Coal Mine Tour, visitors can don a hard hat, climb aboard a train car, and descend 300 feet into a real coal mine, much the same way miners did more than a century ago. Once underground, the hour-long tour explores the mine, with the structures and artifacts still in place, as if it were still in operation. A tour guide explains the methods of the day, the shocking lack of safety provisions, and the dangers of early coal mining.
A smaller but interesting segment of industry in Scranton is record pressing. The Scranton Button Co., founded in 1885, began manufacturing phonograph records in the 1920s. Many record labels used the company, including Pathé, Emerson, Brunswick, Melotone, and others until it was renamed and eventually acquired by Capitol Records. Pressed vinyl phonograph records continued to be made in Scranton until the advent of CDs.
In 1962, businessman Alex Grass opened his “Thrif D Discount Center,” a drugstore on Lackawanna Avenue in downtown Scranton. The tiny store was an immediate success, and eventually grew into the Rite Aid national drugstore chain, still headquartered in nearby Wilkes-Barre. Dempsey Uniform & Linen Supply serves a wide variety of retail, commercial, and industrial customers throughout the Scranton-Wilkes-Barre region including Kelly Motors, Jiffy Lube, and the Lackawanna County Transit System.
