Dickson Works, also known as the Stacor Building, is a historic factory building located at Scranton, Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania. It was built about 1856, and is a long three-story, brick industrial building measuring 100 feet by 300 feet. It features a tower measuring 100 feet tall, a double pitched roof with clerestory windows, and shallow segmental arched windows. It once housed the Dickson Works, a shop to repair and manufacture mine machinery and boilers. The Stacor Equipment Company occupied the building in 1963, and manufactured library tables and furniture.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.[1]
