The Community

WASHINGTON COUNTY, PA. With a population of over 208,000 people, Washington County Pennsylvania is the 18th most populous county in the state, and has a total area of 861 square miles. Bordered on the west by Ohio and thirty minutes from downtown Pittsburgh, the county was named for George Washington and was created from Westmoreland County in 1781. Famed as the location of the culmination of the Whiskey Rebellion of 1791, the county has long been political; indeed, the events of the rebellion contributed to the formation of political parties in this country. In addition to history dating from the Revolutionary War, Washington County is home to the Rock Shelters at Meadowcroft Village, one of the best-preserved and oldest Pre-Clovis Native American dwellings in the country.

Aside from its rich history, Washington County has been home to many notable residents from recording artist Perry Como and Academy Award winner Shirley Jones to iJustine, a YouTube personality. Western Pennsylvania is also renowned as the birthplace of many celebrated athletes: Ken Griffey Junior and Senior, Pete Henry, Arvin Lewis, Stan Musial, and Kurt and Marty Schottenheimer are just a few of the professional athletes born and raised in Washington County.

PITTSBURGH, PA. “The City of Bridges,” Pittsburgh Pennsylvania is one of the jewels of the eastern United States, situated at the junction of the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers where they meet to make the Ohio River. Once a town devoted to the production of steel, Pittsburgh has since evolved to a city whose economy is driven by technology: Google, Apple, Facebook, and IBM are among more than 1,600 technology firms that generate over $20 billion in annual Pittsburgh payrolls. A focus on education, research and development has run deeply through the city, contributing to the excellent job growth Pittsburgh continues to enjoy. 68 colleges and universities including Carnegie Mellon and the University of Pittsburgh lead the way in the nation’s arts, computer science and medicine. Six Fortune 500 companies contribute to the wealth and job security of the city and include PNC Financial Services, PPG Industries, U.S. Steel, The Kraft Heinz Company and Dick’s Sporting Goods.

Culturally rich beyond its size, Pittsburgh is home to major arts venues such as Heinz Hall and the Benedum Center in addition to several world-class museums including the Andy Warhol Museum, the Carnegie Museum of Art, and the Frick Art and Historical Center. The Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium, Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, and the National Aviary have served the city for over a century. Pittsburgh is also a city proud of its sports teams and for good reason: the Pittsburgh Pirates, Penguins and Steelers are some of the most respected teams in their leagues and the Steelers currently hold the record for Superbowl wins with six Lombardi trophies from eight appearances. For these and many other reasons, Pittsburgh has been ranked as the first or second most livable city in the United States five times since 2005 by The Economist’s Global Livability Ranking.
