Richmond UMC is located in an area of northeastern Pennsylvania known as the Slate Belt, just 15 minutes south of Interstate 80 (exit 4B), on Route 611. Stroudsburg lies to our north and Easton to our south. Our building is nestled in a valley, and ample parking may be found in the front and around the side of the building. On snowy or icy days, we recommend you use the lower driveway (accessed by Route 1017 / 5 Points/Richmond Rd.) to avoid the steeper driveway.
