History & History Related Items

Luzerne history:

"Luzerne, in effect, means lighthouse. The name honors the Chevalier de la Luzerne, a French nobleman who raised critical funds for the colonial forces at a low point in the Revolutionary War. He later became French minister to the United States. The family name is traced to Luzern, a village in central Switzerland on Lake Lucerne. The village and lake take their name from the prominent lucerna nearby - French for lighthouse or watchtower. "
