, it is a commercial and industrial center of the surrounding anthracite coal region of NE Pennsylvania. Iron was first forged there in 1797. Early products were coal-mining machinery, locomotives, and rails. Mining decreased after World War II; the unemployment that resulted was largely offset by a successful citizens' program that developed service industries. The city still has manufacturing (foods; electrical equipment; cigars; apparel and textiles; ordnance; and plastic, concrete, and metal products), but production declined sharply, as did Scranton's population, in the late 20th cent.

Of interest are are the Everhart Museum of Natural History, Science, and Art; the main public library; a former coal mine and historical museum; a large Masonic temple–Scottish rite cathedral; historic blast furnaces; and Steamtown National Historic Site (see National Parks and MonumentsNational Parks and Monuments
