Overview


The honorable George Sanderson founded and developed Green Ridge, appropriately named for a green forested ridge in the middle of the Lackawanna Valley. The small village was incorporated into Scranton in 1866 and became home to many of the city's prominent doctors, lawyers, entrepreneurs, and politicians, such as Edward Baker Sturges, the organizer of the first electric street railway, and US vice president Joseph Biden. Many large and beautiful mansions were built in Green Ridge, and some remain today as reminders of times gone by. Once only forest and farmland, Green Ridge has grown into one of the finest residential sections of Scranton.
