Punxsutawney

Punxsutawney, PA
Region: Pennsylvania Wilds

Punxsutawney, famous the world over for its quirky Groundhog Day celebration, was originally a Native American campsite. Situated halfway between the Allegheny and Susquehanna rivers, its location made it convenient for travel; in fact, the town is located on the earliest known trail to the east, the Shamokin Path. Punxsutawney was officially incorporated as a borough in 1850. Coal mining has given way to light industry and, of course, tourism - the considerable fame and popularity of Punxsutawney Phil ensure that this charming small town is flooded with visitors each February 2.
