Towanda is a Borough settled in 1784 with only seven families residing there in 1812. There are still 441 historic structures standing in the historic district mostly featuring Greek Revivial mansions and European-style homes with architectural details you’ll marvel at. It is a busy town with a strong presence in local government, but you won’t be fighting for parking on the weekends to shop or dine in the center of town.
60 miles from Scranton and 66 miles from the larger city of Wilkes-Barre, Towanda is rooted in history of local Pennsylvania Native Americans and settlers. Primarily industrial businesses such as flour, machine shops, dye works and more, it is a small community with roots planted along the west bank of the Susquehanna River. A walking tour of the town center will lead you by the historic buildings including the Keystone Theatre (originally an opera hosue) and Lackawanna College Towandsa Center, which is a private, 2 year university.
