Susquehanna Depot, often referred to simply as Susquehanna, is a borough in Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania, located on the Susquehanna River 23 miles (37 km) southeast of Binghamton, New York.

Recent renovations to several main street buildings mark the first significant upturn in the local economy in several decades. It is known for its Pennsylvania Bluestone quarries.[citation needed]
