Tink Wig is a planned community that is located in Lackawaxen Township, in Pike County of Northeast, PA. Close to Hawley, PA, it offers residents of this community natural beauty and the perfect vacation location.
I heard Tink Wig was rich in history.
The first people of European ancestry to inhabit Lackawaxen Village (designated in 1798) were Jonathan Conkling and John Barnes who settled here before the American Revolution. It was not uncommon for them to flee from the area to the Fort at Westfalls during periods of unrest between the settlers and the local Lenni Lenape and Iroquois Indians who lived along the Lackawaxen River. The Lackawaxen (Lenni Lenape name meaning “swift waters”) area was used mainly for lumbering purposes. The cut lumber was floated down the river on large rafts to the Delaware River.
Are there community events for our family?
Yes! Tink Wig of Pike County in the Pocono Mountains holds an annual picnic and fishing derby! The Pocono Mountains is a popular recreational destination for local and regional visitors. While the area has long been a popular tourist destination, many communities have seen a rise in population. Tink Wig is one of these communities.
