Susquehanna County

Susquehanna County is located in the “Endless Mountains” region of Northeastern Pennsylvania. It was established in 1810, and has its county seat in the borough of Montrose. The county is famous for its beautiful vistas of hills and valleys, which include 169 natural bodies of water.

The name of the county derives from that of a local Native American tribe—the Susquehannock—who lived along what is now known as the Susquehanna River. “Susquehannock” is believed to mean “People of the Muddy River,” or “People of the Well-Watered Land.”

The county’s attractions include the Salt Springs State Park; the Florence Shelley Preserve, which is part of the Nature Conservancy; the Woodbourne Forest and Wildlife Sanctuary; Elk Mountain Ski Resort; and Callender’s Sugar House & Cross-Country Ski Area. Visitors to the county can enjoy a variety of festivals, as well as the Harford Fair. The Susquehanna County Historical Society and the Susquehanna County Library, both located in Montrose, offer a variety of resources to the public.
