Summary
Hazle Township is a township in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, United States. The population was 10,150 at the time of the 2020 census. The township surrounds the city of Hazleton and the borough of West Hazleton.

The most common route for the Native Americans was known as "Warriors Path", which was also used by white settlers in the 18th century. Broad Street (PA 93) is roughly the location of the trail. Moravian missionaries were among the first Europeans to travel to the region; they wanted to convert Native Americans to Christianity. The Hazleton area was then a shallow valley with an abundance of hazel trees. It is speculated that the Native Americans were the first to refer to the area as "Hazle Swamp."
