Known as “The Pioneer City,” Carbondale’s historic charm is not lost in everyday life. The region played a large part in the Industrial Revolution and was the site of the First Deep Underground Coalmine in the United States. The land that became Carbondale was developed by the founders of the Delaware and Hudson Canal Company, William and Maurice Wurts. In addition to its contribution to the coalmining industry in the early 19th century, Carbondale also functioned as a major terminal of the Delaware and Hudson Railroad. It is the fourth oldest city in Pennsylvania.
