Plains PA

Plains Township is a township in Luzerne County with a population of 9,961 at the 2010 census.  The township has a total area of 13.2 square miles and extends from the Susquehanna River in the northwest to the north slope of Wyoming Mountain in the southeast. 

Plains Township encompasses a large geographical area that includes smaller villages like Hilldale, Hudson, Plainsville, and Irishtown, as well as a few business parks and upscale subdivisions.  It is right near the Poconos and has some pretty nice mountain views from a lot of the community.

 

Plains Township is the location of Pennsylvania's first casino, Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs.  Economically speaking Plains Township is a good place to be right now. The newer Mohegan Sun Casino has pumped millions into the township's coffers, and those monies are going to repave roads, improve parks, beef up the police force, and otherwise beautify and revitalize the township community.
