History

Much like other townships, Pocono Township possessed several different names over the past two centuries. Some of its early village names include Swiftwater, Scotrun, Tannersville, Meisertown and Bartonsville. Pocono's current name is actually derived from a Native American term meaning, 'a stream that runs through two mountains.'

Pocono was actually originally a part of Northampton County, created through a petition of the Northampton County courts in November 1816. John Learn is one of the earliest settlers of this Township, having arrived in the present day Pocono Township area by the mid 1700s.

From there, early settlers started developing the first roads. The first road that ran through Pocono Township was the North-South Road. As roads and subsequent railroads started filling the city, it eventually opened 'the gates' for more visitors to move into the region. As a result, Pocono Township started fostering the beginnings of its tourism industry.

Even people who experienced significant illnesses visited the Township, thanks to the clean mountain air and peaceful surroundings that made the recovery process much better.

Pocono Township also has a storied history with illnesses and medicine. Dr. Richard Slee arrived in Pocono in early 1890 after leaving New York to recuperate from a case of cholera. By 1897, he eventually established a laboratory known as Pocono Biological Laboratories, where he later manufactured the small pox vaccine.

The vaccine's success led to the further development of the laboratory. They later manufactured vaccines for diseases like tetanus, diphtheria and typhoid. Sanofi Pastuer eventually opened their own institution on the former property; there, they continue to make vaccines as one of the largest employers in the county.
