West-Hazleton is a small town located in Luzerne County in east-central Pennsylvania. As of the 2010 census, the population was 4,594. West Hazelton is about 30 miles south of Wilkes Barre. Luzerne County is situated in the scenic Wyoming Valley, which is surrounded by the Pocono Mountains to the east, the Endless Mountains to the west and Lehigh Valley to the south. The Susquehanna River flows through the middle of the valley, making up the northwestern border. History buffs will enjoy visiting the region around West Hazelton. For instance, the city of Wilkes Barre is known as "one of America's most historical cities." It was founded during the Revolutionary War (a frontier town at that time) and was burned by the British. Later, the Wyoming Valley Area was claimed by both Pennsylvania and Connecticut, which led to the Yankee-Pennamite War. The U.S. Congress favored Pennsylvanias claim to the region, which led to the town of Wilkes-Barre being burned for the second time in 1784. West Hazelton is near several natural parklands and state parks, and all the natural beauty and recreation that the Poconos has to offer. It's also conveniently located in the Tri-State Area, with easy access to major freeways, only four hours from New York and Philadelphia.
