About Lansford

Lansford, Pennsylvania

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lansford is a borough in Carbon CountyPennsylvania, located 37 miles (60 km) northwest of Allentown and 19 miles south of Hazleton.

 

 


1893 USGS map centered on the three parallel ridges that run SW-to-NE but pinch down and converge into a steep valley along the Lehigh Valley.

Lansford grew with the development of local anthracitecoal mines, and was named after Asa Lansford Foster, who was an advocate for merging the small "patch towns" that developed in the area surrounding the anthracite coal mines. The population was 3,941 at the 2010 Census, a steep decline from a high of 9,632 at the 1930 census common to many mining towns in northeastern Pennsylvania.

History

 

 


Lansford's first school was opened in 1847 on Abbott Street. Lansford's first church, the Welsh Congregational was built in 1850 and still stands today on West Abbott Street.

The old No. 9 Mine and Museum in Lansford, a deep mine which operated from 1855 to 1972, is now open as a tourist attraction offering tours of the mine and a wealth of information on local mining history. A museum occupying the mine's former Wash Shanty building on the site displays a large collection of mining artifacts. One of the local mine bosses, John P. Jones, was murdered in Lansford, reportedly in connection with labor union strife, attributed to members of a secret society known as the Molly Maguires, many of whom were put on trial and hanged in Carbon and Schuylkill Counties during the mid- to late 1870s.

Lansford was also the home of the first Commercial Cable Television system in the United States.

The Lansford Historic District was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2012.

 

 

 


Geography

 

 


According to the United States Census Bureau, the borough has a total area of 1.6 square miles (4.1 km2), all of it land. The town shares the border of Carbon and Schuylkill County with the abutting neighboring community of Coaldale, which is de facto, a suburban bedroom neighborhood. Lansford is 1 mile north of Summit Hill (the initial Anthracite deposits mined by the Lehigh Coal Company in 1780s.), and 10 miles west of Lehighton and 6 miles northeast of Tamaqua. Lansford's elevation is 1145 feet above sea level. It is also 5 miles northeast of Tamaqua, 27 miles northwest of Allentown, and 9 miles south of Hazleton. It is located on the northwestern fringe of the Lehigh Valley, and is at the southern end of the Coal Region and the Poconos.

Lansford sits on the north slope of Pisgah Mountain above and along the south bank of thePanther Creek tributary of the Little Schuylkill River athwart US-209 west of Jim Thorpe,Nesquehoning and the eastern extent of the Lehigh-Schuylkill drainage divide, down slope and below historic Summit Hill and east of abutting Coaldale and Tamaqua, Pennsylvania, both farther downstream and west. Nesquehoning Mountain dominates the north bank across the Panther Creek, and the rich coal mines of the valley shipped coal through the 3,800 feet (1,158.2 m) long Hauto Tunnel of the Central Railroad of New Jersey (CNJ) competing for the rich trade with New York City and Philadelphia.
