could be the rich history
Delaware, Iroquois, Shawnee, Minisink, Lenape, and Paupack Native
Americans were the first known inhabitants of the Poconos region.
In 1659, Dutch settlers set up a homestead near the Delaware
Water Gap. In 1664,
however, the English forced them to move.
English and German settlers began to arrive, and by 1725
the first permanent settlement was established at Shawnee.
first hotel in the Poconos was constructed in 1829, and by 1857
it was the center of a thriving tourism industry.
By 1900, visitors from New York and Philadelphia were spending
summers in the Poconos. The number of resorts and destinations grew exponentially.
World War II, many soldiers often took their leaves with girlfriends,
wives, and families in the Poconos before they went overseas or
during their R & R. Those
who first came to the Poconos in love often returned after the war
for their honeymoons. The
acclaim of the Poconos as the “Honeymoon Capital of the World” first
grew out of this romantic appeal.
