Overview


In June 1748, eighty Nanticoke Indians grounded their canoes in a wilderness along the Susquehanna River in the area that would later be named Nanticoke. While it was first a farming area, coal was later discovered, and by 1825, the first coal mine was in operation. Nanticoke owes its chief growth to the anthracite industry, which provided employment opportunities for thousands of European immigrants. Through their labor and strong work ethic, they established a superb city in which to live a full life. They also left behind a magnificent history of their times. Those times have been preserved in pictorial form and evoke fond memories of Nanticoke.
