A sign welcoming commuters to Newfoundland and the surrounding areas.
Newfoundland is a village in Dreher Township, Wayne County, Pennsylvania. Unlike that of the better-known Canadian island which shares its name, the village's name is stressed on the second syllable (new-FOWND-lənd). It is most famously known as host to the Greene-Dreher-Sterling Fair every Labor Day weekend.
Newfoundland is also host to an annual fireman's picnic and parade every 4th of July weekend. Promised Land State Park is close to the village.
Newfoundland is located along the East Branch of the Wallenpaupack Creek, which feeds into Lake Wallenpaupack to the north. It is about 25 miles (40 km) southeast of Scranton, Pennsylvania.
Newfoundland is home to the South Elementary School, which falls under the purview of the Wallenpaupack Area School District. South Elementary currently serves students grades K through 5.
Two emergency services are headquartered in Newfoundland: the Greene-Dreher Volunteer Fire Association and the Newfoundland Area Ambulance Association. They both provide coverage for the village and surrounding Dreher Township, in addition to portions of adjoining Lehigh and Sterling Townships in Wayne County, as well as parts of Greene, and Palmyra Townships in Pike County, Pennsylvania, and Coolbaugh Township in Monroe County, Pennsylvania.
Dreher Township's municipal building is located in Newfoundland.
Major roads in Newfoundland include PA 507, PA 191, and PA 447. Neighboring villages are Greentown, Pennsylvania; Sterling, Pennsylvania; Tafton, Pennsylvania; and Hamlin, Pennsylvania.
