Welcome to Towamensing Township
The jewel of Towamensing Township is Beltzville State Park and Lake, providing residents and visitors with opportunities year-round recreation, including swimming, fishing, hiking, boating, bird watching, and cross-country skiing. Although Towamensing was originally called "St. Anthony's Wilderness". The Lenape Indian word Towamensing means uninhabited. Today the township is semi-rural, with small farms interspersed with homes and woodlands.
The Township is located within the boundaries of the highly regarded Palmerton Area School District. Towamensing has an active youth sports program, and it is the first township in Carbon County to institute a policy to preserve its historic structures. You will find the township to be a dynamic location with friendly people whether you are planning a July afternoon visit or a permanent move here.
