I live in Los Angeles, but grew up in yucky Glen Lyon. The natives are strictly dis, dem and dos. There is something in the water, indeed. The town is visually bankrupt. It's dead as a doornail. Not even a decent place to raise children. All who enter here, abandon all hope.

I grew up in Glen Lyon all of my life and I have got to say that it is the worst place to grow up in. There is absolutely nothing for the kids to do, there were more bars than anything. In my opinion I think that is why the kids in that town get into so much trouble. I moved away from there in 1996 and I have only visited a handful of times since and it has not changed for the better at all, as far as I can tell it has only gotten worse. That place is not worth your time, gas, or money. Speaking of gas, that town did not even have a gas station the whole time I was growing up there. That town is a ghost town.

I grew up in Nanticoke but know Glen Lyon well. Have relatives living there and friends who did live there. Seemed quiet to me. But I don't think I would have liked to have lived there myself.
The town was famous for awhile in the 1940's when they made the movie The Miracle of the Bells there.
Houses are too close together for me. Rather live in Wapwallopen or Dorrance for space.

Are there jobs or business in the Glen Lyon area?
Sad to say there are barely any people..It's just a small hamlet, no stop lights, one stop sign, that has a history of very hard working immigrants who came to America and thru their labors made their version of the American dream come true....This is where they settled and abopted it as their home...People have a different idea of home, nowadays, but those who originally came here, and their dependents still cling to many good and bad memories living in the community..I was born there 70 plus years ago, and still visit...My parents left, as many did during the War, but many returned to retire and finish out their lives here...My folks are buried , up the mountain, out of town and I know they are resting in peace....They came back home..

Hello! If you are in your 70's and originally from Glen Lyon did you know my friend Pauline? I can't seem to remember her maiden name. I know it began with a T. May Tereshefski or something like that. She married a Kashefski.
Also my cousins wife's family is from there. The Rembecki's. My cousin and his wife still live there on Main St., the Dule family.

I'm 80 years old. I was born in Glen Lyon. We moved to Ma. when I was 13 years old. I went to school with a boy named Paul Tereshinski who had a twin sister named Pauline. They also had an older brother named Joe who played football for the Washington Redskins.

I am very good friends with Pauline. She lives in Sheatown now. We worked together and now we both are retired but we still send each other Christmas cards and keep in touch. Her last name now is Kashefski. She has 2 sons. Pauline's brother just died not too long ago. Can't remember which one.

Well, well, when was the last time you were here and when did you grow up, or maybe you haven't...

Many fine people still live here, grew up here, and chose to come back here. Of course not everyone would measure up to your high standards I am sure, but do all your neighbors (doubtful). As far as raising children here, I would only hope they turn out better than you.

Chipsy hit it right on the head. You ask, "when was the last time you were here?" Well, I live on the west coast now and was born and raised in Nanticoke. Glen Lyon is more of a slum now than when I lived there.
You also said, "not everyone would measure up to your high standards." If you consider high standards as having teeth, and having a job other than collecting welfare and hanging out on Main St., then no, the people of Glen Lyon would not measure up.

My great parents Michael & Hanna Lezsczinski(Leshinski) built a home at 95 Orchard Street. Is it still there. I took my mom several years ago and it was however someone recently told me it was gone. My Mom was Agnes Rich. Her parents were Peter & Agnes. Brothers Joe, Pete & Norbert and a sister Rita. Mom passed in 09. She was the last person left in her family. She has some cousins on Enterprise St. Gertrude Formalek & Joe ?. Are they still alive?
Thank You for any info.

I have only happy memories of Glen Lyon.
Lots of relatives back in the 1940's, at my grandparents house at 36 Engle St. on the hill.
Namowicz was their name. My mom was Joan, plus other family members-- Edward, Leonard, Anthony, John,Jr., and Lottie (who married Ed Broza).
Next door was Mamie Forgach, who's daughter Margie was my buddy. Down the street was the pavilion with festivals & such. I liked to purchase groceries for my grandmother, as she always gave me a few coins to buy an ice cream cone at Babetskys (spelled incorrectly, I'm sure),
Good days!
