I would like to see a historical marker erected at the site of the Nay Aug Amusement park in Scranton, PA. My Great Great Grandfather Adolph Strohl opened this park in 1931 and the amusement park continued to serve the community until the 90s. This amusement park was a quintessential park of Scrantonian childhood for generations.
The story of Nay Aug Amusement Park is not just the story of my family's business. It is the story of an immigrant family generation by generation as they establish themselves in America. The changes that occurred over the course of the park's existence followed the pattern of social changes in America.
