About Stroud Township

Overview

Stroud Township is a Monroe County township located right on the far eastern edge of Pennsylvania. As a part of the many Pennsylvania townships that welcomed early settlers into the state, it's considered one of the largest. Around the time of its early settlement, it housed over 1,000 settlers; by 2010,  the around 19,200 residents resided within the township.

The township has a total area extending 31.5 square miles, which mostly consists of land and few bodies of water.

It's also located right in the heart of the Pocono Mountains in northeastern Pennsylvania. Thanks to its close proximity to enchanting natural scenery, it soon became one of the most popular areas in the country dedicated to resorts and vacationing. The Appalachian Trail, in fact, is one of the most famous scenic areas located throughout the region.

This township is considered the commercial hub of Monroe County, since it hosts a large retail sector, in addition to numerous industries.

History

Stroud Township was first established in January 1817 by a settler named Jacob Stroud. The township was subsequently named after Stroud, who also founded Stroudsburg Borough. The first European settlers of the area were known as the Sly Brothers, who split up and settled in what became present-day Stroud Township and Smithfield Township.

One of the first communal establishments within Stroud Township was actually the first tavern located within all of Monroe County. The tavern was located about two miles west from Stroudsburg, near the foot of Mount Paul that was located near present-day Dreher Avenue.

Throughout its formative decades, the farming and formative industrial industry were abundant throughout the township. The southern portion of the township is known for its limestone-rich soil, considered relatively well matched for farming, particularly in an area known as Cherry Valley.

The northern part of the township hosted other industrial activities, such as tanning, blacksmithing, grist and saw milling, due to a lessened presence of the limestone-rich soil suited for farming.

The 19th century saw the addition of rail lines throughout most of Monroe County, soon birthing the presence of several boarding houses and resorts within the Monroe County area, including Stroud Township.
