Mifflintown is in Juniata County, Pennsylvania..

Understand[edit]

As the county seat of Juniata County, Mifflintown serves as the county's center of business and government. Despite being a borough of 936 residents, the town is home to Empire Kosher Poultry, the nation's largest producer of kosher poultry.

Get in[edit]

Pennsylvania Route 35, a southwest-northeast highway that serves as Juniata County's principal arterial highway running in that direction, forms the main street of Mifflintown. It intersects the former mainline of US routes 22 and 322, which was moved in the early 1970s to a four-lane bypass lying east of the town. The former Pennsylvania Railroad mainline tracks, now owned by the Norfolk Southern Railway, lie across the Juniata River in the adjoining town of Mifflin.

The Juniata County Courthouse is the centerpiece of this town. Built in 1875, this historic structure has been the center of Juniata County government for almost 150 years. In 2010, the bell tower was rebuilt to match the original design. In 2016, the floor was replaced with tile from the same manufacturer as used in the original floor and the center design tiles were reused. A revolving display of county artifacts has been setup in the bookcases in the hallways by the Juniata County Historical Society. Mifflintown is situated along the Juniata River which has played a vital part in the town's history. Today, the river is a popular recreation spot, providing excellent fishing, swimming and boating.
