Created on August 13, 1878 from part of Luzerne County, was the last county to be created. It was named for the Lackawanna River, a name meaning “stream that forks.” Scranton, the county seat, was laid out in 1841, incorporated as a borough in 1856, and became a city on April 23, 1866. It was named for the Scranton family, its founders. The county adopted a home rule charter in April 1976.

The last county created, Lackawanna lies in the area bitterly disputed with Connecticut settlers in the Yankee Pennamite Wars and with the Indians who treasured the Wyoming Valley. Scranton, founded 1840 at Slocum Hollow, was Wilkes Barre’s rival and as the northern anthracite field expanded became wealthier. The Scranton family has been leaders for more than a century. The Scranton brothers developed anthracite iron smelting which led to the Lackawanna Iron and Steel Company, a major economic factor until it was moved to New York in 1902. The area was a center of labor unrest in 1877 and in all the major anthracite mine strikes. The coal industry declined greatly in the late 1920s, revived during World War II, and fell again in the 1960s. A small amount of coal is still surface mined. Railroads once flourished, as the principal means of exporting the coal. Textiles—silk, succeeded by rayon, followed by nylon—have been important products. Lumber is still produced, but Lackawanna is not a significant farming county; 14 percent of the land is farmland. Unemployment became a problem for the region after World War II. William Warren Scranton, banker and politician, was among the first to plan an economic recovery after the coal industry collapsed in the 1960s, emphasizing a diversified business environment.
