Overview


Wyoming County features postcards highlighting the history of communities nestled in the Endless Mountains. These unique images explore important industries such as the Noxen Tannery and the Lehigh Valley and Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroads. Numerous photographs depict the county seat, Tunkhannock, as well as the surrounding towns, such as the former resort areas of Lake Carey and Lake Winola; Vernon and Vose, which have almost completely disappeared; and Laceyville, which appears almost untouched by time. From an early hospital in Meshoppen to scenes near Falls, Mill City, and Mehoopany, Wyoming County is sure to delight both residents and visitors.
