Historic Map - Providence (North Scranton), PA - 1892
This panoramic print of Providence, Pennsylvania was drawn and published by Albert E. Downs in 1892. Providence in the Lackawanna River Valley is now considered North Scranton. Anthracite coal was discovered in the region in the late 1700's and in the early 1800's mining began to gain interest. Providence filled with speculators and miners and by the 1850's its main focus was the mining of the coal fields, the processing and the transportation of the valued ore. Other industries of Providence included iron and steel manufacturers. Providence was a bedroom community to Scranton until the late 1800's when it was included as part of the City of Scranton.
The map from 1892 includes streets, buildings and railroad lines.
