Nestled in the foothills of the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania are the twin towns of Stroudsburg and East Stroudsburg. Discover the history, people, and places of this community in an unprecedented collection of images. Authors and local historians Marie and Frank Summa have compiled fascinating images with a carefully researched and informative text to tell the story of the Stroudsburgs and the Poconos from the time of the Native Americans through the mid-1950s. Known first as Dansbury, in honor of Daniel Brodhead, the settlement later became known as Stroudsburg, in honor of Jacob Stroud. The Stroudsburgs endured and prospered throughout war, fire, and flood. Its inhabitants
included Abraham Lincoln's substitute in the Civil War, a veteran of five wars who became a parish priest, and an attorney general of the United States. The lives and
industries of ordinary citizens as well as these unique and colorful figures of the past are depicted. Images were provided through community loans and local historical
societies to produce this timeless tribute to the history of the Stroudsburgs in the Poconos.
