Thornhurst is a township in Lackawanna County in northeast Pennsylvania. The population of Thornhurst Township was 1,085 as of the 2010 census. The county of Lackawanna lies at the northern edge of the coal region of the northwest Poconos of Pennsylvania. The Lackawanna River runs through the county (for which it was named) and the county seat is the city of Scranton. Attractions near Thornhurst township include the Steamtown National Historic Site, the Electric City Trolley Museum, the Everhart Natural History Museum, the Lackawanna Coal Mine Tour at McDade Park and the Houdini Museum. Each Labor Day, the city of Scranton hosts the 3-day festival, La Festa Italiana on the courthouse square. Scranton also has a large Irish population and a lively St. Patrick's Day Parade that's been a tradition since 1862. For outdoor recreation, Thornhurst is near Sno Mountain Ski Resort, and home to several parks, including Nay Aug Park in Scranton, which was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, who also designed Central Park in Manhattan.
