Where I grew up.

April 26, 2012

Lake Wallenpaupack (41°24′47″N 75°14′25″W) is a reservoir in Pennsylvania, USA. It was created in 1926 by PPL, the Pennsylvania Power & Light Company, for hydroelectric purposes. It is located near Hawley, on the border of Pike and Wayne counties in northeastern Pennsylvania. The Lenape Indians named the area “Wallenpaupack” which means “The Stream of Swift and Slow Water.” William Pennlater owned the land and then deeded it to his son, who then gave it to James Wilson, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence.
