History & History Related Items

Hawley history:

"Sitting at the northern tip of Lake Wallenpaupack, Hawley has seen several name changes over the years. The settlement that grew into present-day Hawley was formed at an eddy (a little whirlpool) near where the Lackawaxen and Wallenpaupack Rivers converged. By 1792 the area became known as "The Eddy;" by 1829, Paupack Eddy; and by 1848, Falls Port. A year later came the name Hawleysburgh, named for Irad Hawley, first president of the Pennsylvania Coal Company, which figured prominently in the development of the Hawley-Honesdale area. By 1851 the "burgh" was dropped, giving us the name we know today. "
(from Name Origins of Northeast PA Towns by Mike O'Hara)
