ⓘ Nescopeck Township, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania

It is believed that the first white settler in what is now Nescopeck Township was George Walker in 1786. The early settlers were frequently harassed by Native Americans. Nescopeck Township was formed from a section of Newport Township in 1792. The largest hamlet in the township, which is now the Borough of Nescopeck, was established on the site of a former Delaware settlement which was a rendezvous for the Native Americans during the French and Indian War. The first church was erected in 1811.
