ABOUT THE BOROUGH
The Borough of Blossburg is a small community of about 4.5 square miles and a 2010 population of 1538 persons. The borough is located in the northern tier of Pennsylvania in Tioga County, which adjoins New York State. It is traversed from north to south by both the Tioga River and U.S. Route 15.
The borough is characterized by its outstanding scenery, including more than 600 acres of state forest lands. Route 15 forms the spine of the borough, especially the northern portion, with development extending along this road, north from its juncture with the Tioga River. South of the river, development on Route 15 is sparse. There is a small business district near the center of the borough, along the river, and some scattered commercial development, primarily along Route 15. The borough is basically a single family housing bedroom-type community, and a one-industry town. It is served by both a public water system and central sewage disposal.
