Welcome to Shenandoah

Shenandoah, located along PA Routes 54 and 924 in the Upper Schuylkill Region, is an ethnically diverse town that expresses its cultural flair through a vibrant Main Street dotted with a selection of fine restaurants and shops.



Borough residents worship at Shenandoah's historic churches that feature magnificent architectural and artistic elements. Visitors are always welcome to experience the atmosphere and celebrate mass with the community. St. Michael's Ukrainian Catholic Church was the first Greek Catholic Church established in the United States in 1884.


Shenandoah is the birthplace of famed big band musicians Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey, who consistently topped the charts in the 1930s and 1940s with some of the best swing rhythms ever created, such as "Chasing Shadows," "Anything Goes," and "I'll Never Say Never Again."

The borough is also the birthplace of Mary Twardzik, whose son Ted - using Mary's original recipe - launched the Shenandoah-based, and nationally-recognized brand Mrs. T's Pierogies, a staple of Schuylkill County's cuisine and local economy.


Shenandoah's "Heritage Day", the last weekend in August, includes "The Parade of Nations" and is a unique experience not to be missed. Marchers in native costumes, representing fourteen nationalities that make up the ethnic heritage of the town, proudly display their ancestral pride accompanied by bagpipe, polka and even mariachi bands.



A point of interest to visitors as well as locals is the Pennsylvania Anthracite Miners Memorial, in Shenandoah's Girard Park, at the corner of Main and Washington Streets. The large three-paneled bronze bas relief sculpture by Zenos Frudakis is dedicated to the thousands of anthracite coal miners who lived and worked in Pennsylvania.


The impressive monument is surrounded by bricks featuring the names of many of the miners, and benches where visitors can rest and reflect on the hardworking residents of the Upper Schuylkill Region who helped to build America.
