County Profile



Our little corner of the world is

located in north central Pennsylvania,

just 40 miles south of the New York

State border and about 226 miles

north of Philadelphia. The Tioga

County seat is located in Wellsboro.


Geographically, Tioga County is the second largest county in Pennsylvania, covering 1,100 square miles. The population is 42,000 people. Over 82% of the county is rural, and miles of country roads and mountainous terrain separate the towns and villages we serve.

Tioga County residents have access to a variety of resources, including a unique area-wide health system, a community college and a state university.

Our manufacturing base and service industries are growing. Tourism is rapidly becoming a major source of revenue for the area. In a recent study compiled by editors of the national magazine Sports Afield, Wellsboro was cited as one of the 50 best outdoor towns in the nation.
