Middle Smithfield Township

Located on the western bank of the Delaware River, Middle Smithfield Township, in Monroe County, Pennsylvania has long been identified with the rugged, natural beauty of the Poconos. Residents and visitors alike have been drawn to the area for decades, but development in the region did not begin to spike until the 1970s when population swelled and vacation/second homes became increasingly popular. More recently, the area has transitioned into a bedroom community, accommodating more and more year round residents attracted by the local scenery, relatively affordable cost of living, and easy access to strong economies in New York and New Jersey.
