History & History Related Items

Glenburn history:

"In 1848, George Humphrey bought land near what is now Glenburn Pond, and for almost 30 years the area was called Humphreysville. During this period, the poems and novels of Sir Walter Scott enjoyed widespread popularity in America, especially among the social set. Scott sometimes used the word 'glen' to describe locales in his works, and he is credited with popularizing the use of the word in this country. 'Glen' literally means 'narrow valley' though it evokes images of a pristine community. 'Burn' is a Scottish form of 'brook,' and the combined word 'Glenburn' achieves a pronounced literary effect and still describes the area accurately. Today Glenburn is one of the region's finest places to live. "
(from Name Origins of Northeast PA Towns by Mike O'Hara)
