Welcome to Stroudsburg, PA!

The area that is now Stroudsburg was settled by British Colonel Jacob Stroud in 1769 and housed one of numerous forts built in Pennsylvania to protect settlers from American Indian raids. Remnants of the town's history dot the streets, and the 1795 Stroud Mansion—built by the colonel for his son—now houses a museum and research library for visitors interested in learning about the area's past. For a more palpable journey through local history, visit Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm, a re-creation of a late 18th-century Pennsylvania farmstead complete with period-dressed docents and plenty of traditional activities. Stroudsburg also affords a range of recreational pursuits, from golfing at a local course to fishing on the Delaware Water Gap, located just 5 mi (8 km) away. A short drive northeast of the city is Bushkill Falls, a popular hiking destination praised for the beauty of its eight water falls, including the impressive 100-ft (30-m) Main Falls.
