Smethport is a borough of McKean County, Pennsylvania, and the county seat. As of the 2000 census, the population was 1,684.

Smethport was first surveyed by Dutch land surveyors in 1807 who selected it as northwest Pennsylvania’s most perfect town site.

The community was named after Raymond and Theodore de Smeth, Dutch bankers and business agents based in Amsterdam, who established their firm in 1736.
