About Jackson Township

Overview

Jackson Township is a township located in Monroe County, residing close to the famous Pocono Mountains region in the state of Pennsylvania. Much like surrounding townships, it's relatively modest in size and population.

Much of this township consists of about 29 square miles of land with few bodies of water. Jackson Township is known for a significant portion of Big Pocono State Park, a state park of Pennsylvania, residing within its area. It's located nearby the Camelback Mountain in Jackson Township.

This township was known for its prominent farming and logging community throughout the mid 19th century. Many of Pennsylvania's most progressive farms from that century were actually located right within Jackson Township.

The township also played a significant role in the ice history, since most of the ice was harvested from the two major lakes within Jackson Township—Trout Lake and Mountain Springs Lake.

The growth of the township intensified after the construction of the Wilkes Barre and Eastern Railroad in the late 1800s.

History

Jackson Township was first incorporated in December 1843, following its establishment in September of that year. The population of the area that eventually became the township grew to the point that it needed to become a township to better accommodate its residents. The origins of its name likely point to Andrew Jackson, at that time the seventh president of the United States.

Three court-appointed commissioners, Peter Shaw, John Huston and Stogdell S. Stokes, were responsible for creating the initial boundary lines for the township. This helped established the township as a single entity, separating it from the nearby Pocono Township.

The first settler who permanently settled within the Jackson Township area was Frederick Miller. Moving himself and his family into the area, he purchased about 400 acres of land to establish one of the first saw mills in the area.

After the Miller family moved into the area, many other early settlers moved into the area, soon opening their own establishments that kept the area fairly active. Some of the earliest villages within Jackson Township include Appenzell, Reeders and Neola.

After the Wilkes-Barre and Eastern Railroad ran through Jackson township, the already burgeoning agricultural market started significantly expanding through the establishment of new markets. The long route that the railroad extended helped significantly contribute to this expansion, which in turn, caused business there to flourish and encourage its overall growth.
