Scranton was originally incorporated as a borough in 1856 and later as a city in 1866.

Scranton Activities and Attractions
Nay Aug Park is the largest in the city and was the site of a former amusement park that closed in the 1990s. However, there is still a small entertainment area that’s still operated in the park and is located near the swimming pool complex. Also in the park is the Nay Aug Gorge and the Everhart Museum. The gorge provides visitors with breathtaking views of the area, while the Everhart Museum was founded in 1908 and is the largest public museum in the northeastern portion of the state.
The Steamtown National Historic Site is located in Scranton and provides visitors with the chance to learn more about the steam locomotive. You get to feel the heat from the firebox, hear the bell and whistle and even feel the ground rumble underneath your feet as the locomotive fires up.
