Discover Hawley PA Homes for Sale and Lifestyle!
Situated on Lackawaxen River, the charming town of Hawley is located just north of Lake Wallenpaupack about 20 miles west of the New York border, and is just 95 miles from the New York City and Philadelphia metro areas. The town got its name from Irad Hawley, the first president of the Pennsylvania Coal Company. The original residents of Hawley helped to transport coal as it made its way from Pennsylvania mines to New York markets in the mid-1800s, from their location on the Delaware & Hudson Canal and gravity railroad. Today, Hawley is better known for its charm and easy going vibe and for having Pennsylvania’s third-largest freshwater lake in its backyard.
A small town with “big town culture,” Hawley is situated where Middle Creek enters the Lackawaxen River and is home to a number of notable lakes, historical landmarks, golf courses, entertainment venues, and recreational facilities. As you first enter Hawley, one of the first buildings that will catch your eye is the Hawley Silk Mill, the first large-scale silk factory in Northern Pennsylvania. The original building was completely renovated in 2011 and now features art galleries, dining, entertainment, a fitness center, and more. Hawley’s Main Street offers unique places to eat, shop, and explore.
You can also check out Church Street to see the beautiful churches and the Ritz Company Playhouse on Keystone Street, which has been providing live theater productions for over 45 years. Hawley’s Bandstand at Bingham Park is situated on 5.51 acres and is a popular destination for baseball games, tennis, playground activities, picnics, and more. During the months of May – October, Bingham Park is home to the local Hawley Farmer’s Market and offers a variety of special events, craft shows, and concerts at the Bandstand.
