The Lackawaxen and Delaware Rivers are what initially drew Zane Grey to the area. These rivers fulfilled his love for fishing and the outdoors. Zane and his brother Romer would eventually settle in Lackawaxen and call the area home. Zane Grey lived in Lackawaxen, Pennsylvania from 1905 to 1918. Exhibits in the Zane Grey Museum give viewers a better understanding of the life and writing of the famed western author. His office and study has been meticulously recreated based on an interior photograph by famed photographer Louis Hensel.
