Homes For Sale in the Back Mountain Dallas Area
The “Back Mountain” is a region behind the mountain ridge forming the northwest side of the Wyoming Valley. The area includes the Townships of: Dallas, Franklin, Jackson, Lehman, Kingston and Lake. The region also includes the Boroughs of Dallas and Harveys Lake. Within Kingston Township are the areas known as Shavertown and Trucksville.
Back Mountain contains both the Dallas School District and the Lake Lehman School District. The Dallas School District covers the Borough of Dallas and Dallas Township, as well as Franklin Township and Kingston Township, while Lake Lehman covers Lake Township and Lehman Township. The community also has Misericordia University and the Penn State University Wilkes-Barre campus for higher education. Misericordia features the Pauly Friedman and MacDonald Art Galleries which are open to the public, as well as the annual Under the Stars Summer Arts Festival.
The Back Mountain Trail is another highlight of the area. Originally built in the 1880s as a rail line to deliver ice, today the trail stretches from Lower Demunds Road in Dallas to Luzerne. Eventually, the trail should hopefully extend to Misericordia University and beyond.
The Lands at Hillside Farms, located in nearby Kingston Township, is a non-profit, historic, educational farm. It is a popular stop for homemade milk, ice cream, butter, and local honey, artisan cheeses, and organic vegetables. The animals on the farm, including sheep, goats, and calves, provide interest for both kids and adults alike.
The Back Mountain area offers a wide variety of housing in its various communities. The heart of Dallas offers a great feel with varied, mostly 1920s-1950s homes on tree lined streets with sidewalks, to outlying estates that haven been owned and maintained by generations of families in beautiful settings enclosed by fences and offering century restored barns and outbuildings. There are numerous subdivisions throughout the area. Many provide traditional housing at affordable levels. And some provide larger lots with stately homes.
The Back Mountain is certainly an area to consider in your quest for the perfect home for your needs.
