We enjoyed our walk around the square at night, taking photos of the Electric City sign, fountains and grand building.

This building represents courthouse architecture from another era. It is within walking distance of the Hilton.

The Lackawanna County Court House sits right in the middle of downtown Scranton. It is beautiful building with much history. When in Scranton a place not to miss.

This is one of many buildings that show how buildings were made many years ago. They have stood the test of time and have very beautiful interiors.
