Created September 25, 1852, from parts of Lackawaxen, Westfall, and Milford Townships, bears the name which Indians used to describe the Creek. In comparison to the nearby Lackawaxen "swift waters," the Shohola was more quiet, tranquil, or peaceful. Those who ask for a one-word translation of "Shohola" might well select "peaceful".
