History & History Related Items

Mahanoy City history:

"City Indians noted the fact that deer congregated at the salt deposits near what is now Mahanoy City. In English, we call such deposits a "lick." The Delaware Indian name for lick is mahoni, hence the transition over time from "Mahoni City" into the present-day form of this Schuylkill County town. Schuylkill, by the way, is not an Indian name, but is Dutch for "hidden stream." When Dutch explorers first passed the mouth of the Schuylkill River, they missed it completely, so later they gave it this name. "
(from Name Origins of Northeast PA Towns by Mike O'Hara)
