Welcome To Athens Township
We are centrally located on the northern border of Bradford County with a population of 5,000. Officially formed in 1797, the Township surrounds the area known as the "Valley" which includes: Athens, Sayre, and South Waverly Boroughs. The north border is defined by the New York Pennsylvania state line. The Chemung and Susquehanna Rivers serve as the borders to the Boroughs inside the Township. A major thoroughfare for the Township is US Route 220, which runs north and south near the center of the township. Easy access from New York's Interstate 86/RT 17 is provided by (2) interchanges.
The Township features recreation parks and rivers, access to a major medical center, and great local shopping provided by wonderful local shops and large chain stores. We are minutes away from (2) airports providing access to all major cities in the northeast. The township is served by the Athens Area School District.
The Township continues to possess many of the rural traits and traditions that helped to shape this community. Like much of rural Pennsylvania it is a beautiful, serene, safe, and vibrant community in which to raise a family.
Our hope is this web site provides a continuing flow of meaningful information to our residents and encourages increased communication between the Township and the public that we serve.Athens Township Map
