Nestled behind the Endless Mountains in Luzerne County, the rolling hills of the Back Mountain are a scenic blend of Pennsylvania s natural beauty and history. Adjacent to the anthracite coal regions of Luzerne and Lackawanna Counties, the Back Mountain includes Kingston Township, Trucksville, Shavertown, Dallas, Huntsville, Lehman, and Harvey s Lake. Historically the area offered many forms of recreation and entertainment, which brought tourists from all over the Northeast. Harvey s Lake is the largest natural lake in Pennsylvania, and it became a major resort destination in the early 20th century. Pennsylvania s Back Mountain is a compilation of rare photographs documenting this historic community and revealing a bygone era of amusement parks, hotels, railroads, and steamboats."
