Lackawannock was formed from Lackawannock township in August, 1849. The
township is chiefly noted as an agricultural region, though at one time
a blast furnace was operated within its boundaries. No towns have grown
up here .
Of the first settlers who came to enjoy this
region, Alexander McCullough came towards the close of the eighteenth
century. Thomas Gordin and Jacob Osborn and Christian Miller were also
among the pioneers. George Wright arrived about 1804. The descendants
of several of these still live in the township.
