About

Barrett Township is a second class township located in northern Monroe County, Pennsylvania. Nestled in the beautiful Pocono Mountains of northeast Pennsylvania, Barrett Township is a growing community of approximately 4,100 full time residents. With the presence of several popular tourist destinations, resorts, and a thriving commercial and business community, the population present in the Township on a daily basis can often swell to many times that number.

Two Poconos resort communities of Buck Hill Falls and Skytop are located within the township.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the township has a total area of 53.2 square miles (137.9 km²), of which, 52.6 square miles (136.2 km²) of it is land and 0.6 square miles (1.7 km²) of it (1.22%) is water.

Barrett was formed in 1859 from portions of both Paradise Township and Price Township. The Township is bordered on the south by Paradise Township, Price Township to the southeast, and Coolbaugh Township on the west. Barrett Township is bordered by Greene Township in Pike County to the north, and Porter Township in Pike County to the northeast.
Barrett is close enough to the more populous areas of the county to be conveniently accessible, yet it's position within Monroe County provides for a more "small town" sense of community and makes it a great place to live, work, play, and raise a family.
Barrett Township is governed by a five member Board of Supervisors, who are elected by the residents of the Township. The Township Supervisors are available during Township meetings, and may be available at other times as needed. Please call (570) 595-2602 or e-mail Info@BarrettTownship.com to contact the Board of Supervisors.
