Towanda, the county seat, is on the west bank of the Susquehanna River. U.S. Route 6 passes through the center of the borough, leading southeast to Tunkhannock, 60 miles to the Scranton area and 37 miles to Mansfield. The Towanda Historic District and Bradford County Courthouse are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
