Mahanoy City is a borough located 50mi northwest of Reading and 13 miles southwest of Hazleton, in northern Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania in the southern Coal Region. The name "Mahanoy" is believed to be a variation of the Native American word 'Maghonioy', or "the salt deposits".HistoryMahanoy City, originally a part of Mahanoy township, was settled in 1859 and incorporated as a borough by decree of the Court of Quarter Sessions of Schuylkill County on December 16, 1863. The borough was a major center of anthracite production and the region was embroiled in the Molly Maguires incidents. It was served by branches of the Lehigh Valley and the Philadelphia & Reading railways.The valley is located in the anthracite coal region of Pennsylvania. Fire clay also abounds in the vicinity. The borough's principal industries are still the mining and shipping of coal, although the demand for it has steadily declined since its peak in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Aside from coal, the manufacturing of shirts, bedding and foundry products is also fairly prominent.In 1930 the St. Nicholas Coal Breaker was built and went into operation in 1932 but was demolished in 2015.In 1948, Mahanoy City became the first municipality in the country to have Cable TV.
