The Stroudsburg area is a central area of the Pocono Mountains of Northeastern Pennsylvania. In 1779, Jacob Stroud sold lots and started a development which later became Stroudsburg. When he died in 1806, Daniel inherited the land and in 1810 he laid out the borough of Stroudsburg. In 1815 a form of government was chartered and in 1816 a committee was formed to provide a school. The first newspaper, The Stroudsburg Gazette, started publishing in 1832.
Stroudsburg was named the county seat in 1836 and the first session of court was held the same year. The borough was incorporated in 1837 and the Stroudsburg bank opened in 1857.
