Hyde Park history:

"Once a borough independent of Scranton, Hyde Park got its name sometime between 1825 and 1830. One early homeowner in Hyde Park, Harvey Chase, had recently moved from Hyde Park, New York, home of the future Roosevelt estate. One day Chase took a piece of wood, painted the name "Hyde Park" on it, and placed the sign in his neighbor's front yard. Needless to say, the name stuck. Hyde Park, New York had been named for Edward Hyde, governor of the New York colony from 1702 to 1708. The name's choice, no doubt, was influenced by the famous Hyde Park in London. "
(from Name Origins of Northeast PA Towns by Mike O'Hara)
