Dushore is a one stoplight town in Sullivan County close to Rickett’s Glen and World’s End State Parks. Only five miles from town are the beginnings of Loyalstock Trail and Appalachian Trail, so this area is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts that want beautiful views and no traffic.
Founded in 1859 and named after a French navy captain, the downtown includes businesses that reflect the history of the area. Many French aristocrats fled during the French Revolution and some settled in Pennsylvania. As years passed, more entrepreneurs and industry moved to the farming and forested area. Known for the railroad and ice cream, Dushore is a destination highlighted by the Founder’s Day festival in August.
