Welcome to Frackville


Plentiful veins of anthracite coal discovered north of the Broad Mountain, near Frackville, attracted residents to settle the village in the late 1800s. Initially, the population was comprised mostly of mining and railroad officials, and coal miners' families.


Original settler and the borough's namesake Daniel Frack divided a portion of his large acreage into town lots, which combined with a tract from Frackville cofounder Samuel Haupt, created the basis for the town.


Frackville's position near the Broad Mountain may have been the inspiration behind Haupt's nickname Mountain City Property, which he used to refer to his rural land, which became a prime piece of residential real estate. Locals continue to use the moniker Mountain City when referring to Frackville.


Today, the borough is conveniently located along PA Route 61 and is easily accessible from Interstate 81. Frackville is a gateway into the Upper Schuylkill Region from either the south or north.
