Rough and Ready is a village located in Upper Mahantongo Township, Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania, along Route 125 near the confluence of Little Mahantango Creek and Mahantango Creek, which flows west into the Susquehanna River. It uses the Klingerstown zip code of 17941.[2] The village was named for the gold-rush town of Rough and Ready, California, which in turn was named by a mining company also named in honor of Zachary Taylor's nickname, "Old Rough and Ready."
