USS Scranton (SSN 756) is named after the city of Scranton, Penn., located in the Lackawanna River Valley. Scranton grew from a tiny commercial settlement in 1800 to a giant producer of iron ore and anthracite coal and by 1900 was one of the country's major railroad centers.
The ship's seal reflects its ties to its namesake city, and is a representative of the city's historic development into a major railroad hub. The National Historic Site "Steamtown" commemorates this railroad heritage and features a large collection of steam locomotives and rolling stock.
Scranton was built by Newport News Shipbuilding and Drydock Company and launched July 3, 1989, and was commissioned Jan. 26, 1991.
