History of Freeland, Pa.
Businesses listed in the 1921-1922 city directory

This information was taken from a business directory for 1921-1922, published by the Luzerne Publishing Company. Livery stables coexisted with garages as automobiles began to replace horses for travel and transportation. A number of factories were in operation in the early 1920s. A wide variety of goods and services were available to Freeland citizens and their neighbors from surrounding towns.

Many thanks are due to the friend of Freeland's history who lent me this directory to copy. I also have a copy of another Freeland directory from 1928-1929, but it may still be under copyright protection and so I'm not posting it. However, if anyone is looking for information from that period and would like me to check that directory for them, just send e-mail and I'll be glad to oblige. And if you know of other directories containing Freeland information, I'd be grateful to know about them. Thanks.
