The name is unique in that Tamaqua is the only community in the world with this name.GeographyTamaqua is located in a valley basin at situated within the Pennsylvania Coal Region section of the Appalachian Mountains in the Schuylkill River drainage basin. Tamaqua's valley is just off the western end of the Pocono Mountains, just on the edge of the neighboring Lehigh watershed. Because of the dominant terrain the town is typical of medium towns in Ridge-and-valley Appalachians—low lands and flats were historically given over to business, rail transport and industries, with dwellings located upon the slopes above.
