Punxsutawney is a borough in Jefferson County, Pennsylvania, United States, northeast of Pittsburgh.HistoryThe area was originally settled by the Lenape (Delaware Indians), and the name "Punxsutawney" derives from a Native name in Unami (a Lenape language): ', which translates to "town of the sandflies" or "town of the mosquitoes". Alternatively, the name is said to come from another Unami term, ', which means "poison vine."In 1907, Punxsutawney and Claysville boroughs were consolidated and incorporated as Greater Punxsutawney. A high-grade soft coal was mined in the surrounding region. Formerly, the factories included glassworks, foundries, ironworks, machine shops, and planing, flour, feed, and silk mills. In 1900, 6,746 people lived there; in 1910, 9,058; in 1920, 10,311; and in 1940, 9,482 people lived there.

Phil and the town were the basis for the 1993 film Groundhog Day (although nearly all of the film was shot in Woodstock, Illinois). The film actually made the name "Punxsutawney Phil" a national cultural reference in the US.Plan how to spend your time in Punxsutawney and other destinations in United States using our United States trip planner.
