The local landscape was formed over 11,000 years ago by the retreating Wisconsin glacier. As the ice melted, it left behind massive boulders and rocks, known as "drift deposits". This geological event created vast areas of swampy land that made up what is now Tobyhanna Township. Man's development of the 1800's has reclaimed much of the swamp, but many parts of it still exist as protected wetlands today.
