Note that in when Lackawanna County became a separate entity from Luzerne County, some local businessmen in Wilkes-Borough were so incensed that they stopped talking to their associates in the Scranton area for years to come.

It was later spun off into regions that now form parts of 17 other counties. The current Lycoming County is still the largest in the state, larger than Rhode Island and nearly three times the size of Lackawanna County.

Manheim Apparently named by In town for a couple of days real post settlers from Mannheim, Germany, who it seems got a big kick out of dropping 'N's, as in the transition of Hannover, Germany to Hanover, Pennsylvania.
The city was named around by the illustrious Baron Henry Steigel, who wasn't really a baron and didn't even come from Mannheim. He was actually from Cologne, Germany, to the northwest of Mannheim.

Matamoras Like Hazleton, here's another case of a famous misspelling. The town apparently took its name during the Mexican War safter the American army captured the Mexican city of Matamoros near the border with Brownsville, Texas. That city had originally been named for Mariano Matamoros, a hero of the Mexican Revolution. How the spelling ever changed to Matamoras in Pike County is unclear, but the typo seems to be a common one. A Catholic priest, Matamoros was active in Mexico's war of independence from Spain.
After his capture by the Spanish he was defrocked, convicted of treason and then executed by firing squad. Technically speaking, if one could walk to the southernmost point of Matamoras on Interstate 84, midway over the Delaware Riverone could stand in the states of Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York simultaneously.
This also happens to be the easternmost point of Pennsylvania, in a virtual tie, that is, sharing the honors with a speck of land just south of White Horse, New Jersey.

That name changed to the more pleasant sounding Mayfield injoining Glenburn and Elmhurst as town names chosen to help convey pastoral images.

It's said that untillocals were content to consider themselves residents of Carbondale Township. Around that time a few disagreements arose that eventually led to the "erection of the borough," Thomas Murphy, History of Lackawanna Countya fairly exciting event to imagine, whether in or otherwise.
One wonders whether the erection of an entire borough would require emergency reserves of Viagra as well as an ambulance crew on hand, not to mention a parade with floats and marching bands and a special appearance by the local Hose Company to kickstart the day's festivities. One also wonders what percentage of male residents would be required to reach a quorum, and whether all must participate simultaneously in this celebration of democracy, and whether the female residents were allowed the full privileges of fulfilling their civic duties as it were.

It was a cold spring day, so it's been said, when these Connecticut settlers popped the cork on the rum, not long before embarking to north-central Pennsylvania where there was enough good cheer left over to name a new town.
The event was certainly a merry time for one and all, so much so that a Merryall Road still exists today back in New Milford.

Milford A ford is a shallow part of a body of water that can be crossed by wading. Prior to the Revolution, the Wells brothers operated a saw mill and a grist grain mill near an old ford on Saw Creek, which feeds the Delaware.
This ford came to be called the mill ford, and the nearby settlement took on the Mill-ford name after a brief stint as Wells Ferry.

Milford is one of America's first "planned" communities, patterned roughly after the street-and-alley layout of Philadelphia. Several streets were named after the children of a prominent judge named John Biddis, and the alleys were named after fruit trees and berry bushes found in the area.

Milwaukee This village to the In town for a couple of days real post of Scranton was once known as the rather unglamorous Adult want nsa NY Brooklyn 11226, but the name was changed in to coincide with the opening of a new mill. Local inhabitants celebrated the name-change with great fanfare, and many believed the modern-sounding Milwaukee was now headed for the big time.
The precise reason for choosing Milwaukee is uncertain. Perhaps the supposed double-whammy of promoting the "mill" aspect as well as forming a mental association, however tenuous it may seem in retrospect, with the prominence of the well-known Lady wants sex CO Weston 81091 city bode well for future success. Or perhaps the town fathers understood Milwaukee as an approximation of the Algonquin Indian name for "good land" which is always a nice plug for the home team when you're trying to attract new residents.

Montrose Named around by a local landowner, Dr. Robert Rose, Montrose combines the doctor's name with the French montmeaning "mountain.
In choosing Montrose, Dr. Rose no doubt also had in mind a historic Scottish town of the same name, in which case we'd throw out the "mount" part of the meaning and lean toward the Gaelic "moor on a peninsula. When residents of nearby Brooklyn mounted a campaign to locate the Susquehanna County seat in their town, Rose's personality and maybe also his wallet carried the day, and Montrose eventually claimed the prize.
