Schuylkill County & Surrounding Area Information


Finding its place on the map with small towns like Frackville, Ashland, and Minersville, Schuylkill County sits nestled in the beautiful blue mountains of eastern Pennsylvania. With such an ideal location, it’s no wonder the county is known for its coal mining history, which is evident throughout the region in many ways.


Featuring miles of hiking trails, lakes, historical sites and more, Schuylkill County is also home to the famous Yuengling Lager Brewery, America’s oldest brewery located in Pottsville. No matter your taste, this county offers something for everyone!


With unique homes priced below the national average and countless opportunities to purchase farm land, new constructions, or existing single-family homes, Schuylkill County is conveniently located within commuting distance to large metropolitan areas. However, if you’re looking for other ways to pass the time, we’ve listed a few suggestions in & around Schuylkill County that might entice you!
