Plymouth Borough

Home » Living in Luzerne County » Municipalities » Plymouth Borough

Plymouth Borough was incorporated in 1866. It is a community of 6,507 residents. Plymouth is bordered by the Susquehanna River on one side and Plymouth Mountain on the other. The main route is SR11, which passes through the business district and connects with neighboring Edwardsville to the north and Plymouth Township to the south.

Originally, referred to as Shawneetown after a community of Shawnee Indians, the Borough was renamed Plymouth as a tribute to the first place the Puritans had touched in the new world, Plymouth, Massachusetts.

Years later, Plymouth remains prosperous. Main Street features barbershops, drug stores, banks, churches, offices, and a public library, to name a few. In addition, Plymouth is saturated with outstanding restaurants, pizza shops, and delis.

With all of this to offer, Plymouth is surely a town with a bright future.
