Those of us who call Blossburg home know we have so many special assets and strengths. We are a close-knit, caring and safe place to raise a family. It’s the kind of town where your child can safely walk to the movie theater, buy a ticket, a drink and popcorn for $7 and, if they act up in the movie, you’ll know about it before they even get home.

We treasure our past and, at the same time, embrace new ideas, new people, varying lifestyles and different points-of-view. We are a beautiful and inviting place with a walkable downtown and great recreational space at Island Park.

The downtown is still uniquely situated so that anyone can walk to a mom and pop grocery store, the doctor’s office, bank, movie theater, restaurant, pharmacy, the library, borough office, the school and local parks.

Blossburg is filled with countless volunteers from the guys who wake up on Saturday mornings to cook chickens to benefit other organizations to the various church groups continuously giving selflessly to our youth programs. When you talk to people from Blossburg, almost every person can tell you something they volunteer in.

There is a strong sense of community and compassion from young to old. It’s like living in a Norman Rockwell painting. At the end of the day, you know that people will support you and our community spirit will drive us to continue on this path of growth and connection. Blossburg is a small town with a big heart, and I’m humbled to call it my home.
