Watsontown Borough

Northumberland County Pennsylvania

Watsontown is a community of about 2,255 residents located in Northumberland County, in the heart of central Pennsylvania’s beautiful Susquehanna River Valley. Watsontown has historic homes, a fine assortment of shops and restaurants, access to recreation along the Susquehanna River and a great quality of life for our residents. Watsontown offers an easy commute to major employers in more metropolitan areas while maintaining that small town feeling that many of us seek when deciding where to live. That’s why “Come Home to Watsontown” is more than a slogan; it is a way of life.
