DescriptionLuzerne County is a county located in the state of Pennsylvania. It is located in the
northern Anthracite area called "The Coal Region". Its county seat is Wilkes-Barre.
In 2000, the population was 319,250. Estimated population in 2004 was 313,431.

Luzerne County was formed in 1786 from part of Northumberland County. Luzerne
is infamous for being the last county whose sheriff legally formed a posse to restore
order in a time of civil unrest. In 1897, Sheriff James Martin's posse fired on a group
of unarmed miners in what is known as the Lattimer Massacre.

Luzerne Country is the only county in the United States with a plurality of citizens
reporting Polish as their primary ancestry; the majority of Pennsylvanians report
German or Pennsylvania Dutch.
