SCRANTON, Pa. – Steamtown National Historic Site will be prominently featured on a commemorative stamp in 2018, the Scranton Times-Tribune reports. Eastern National, a nonprofit support group for the Park Service, has decided to include Steamtown in its annual Passport to Your National Parks Regional Stamp Set. This is the first time Steamtown has been featured on the stamp in its 32-year history within the service.

Steamtown Superintendent Debbie Conway says being featured in the stamp set will help bring more attention to the park. “It brings more awareness,” Conway says. “There are a lot of people who definitely have their national park passport wherever they go.”

The stamp features a photo by Steamtown volunteer James Benetzky with a locomotive on the museum turntable.
