Yellow Creek State Park is home to 3 hiking trails: Damsite Loop Trail - This is a 2.5 mile trail that offers a view of the Yellow Creek dam. To get to this trail, follow PA 259 south from the park office. After taking a right turn at the stop sign, turn onto Hoffman Road - the second road to your right. This road ends at a small parking area where the Damsite Loop Trail begins. This trail can be hiked as an in and out or a loop. The in and out version of this hike would use strictly the eastern leg of the trail which is relatively easy. Adding the loop portion adds a little more difficulty as it winds slightly up and down a hill. The in and out version is kid/family friendly. This is a nice quiet out of the way place with picnic areas as well. Ridge Top Trail - Ridgetop Trail is a challenging 2 mile trail. It begins in the beach/day-use area and winds through a variety of habitats. Laurel Run Trail - The shorters of the three hiking trails, at Yellow Creek State Park, it is ideal to take children on. This trail is a 0.5 mile loop which starts at the Yellow Creek State Park office. This easy hike is especially beautiful in the spring when wildflowers abound.

McIntyreMcIntyre, Pennsylvania, was one of more than a dozen coal mining company towns developed by the Rochester and Pittsburgh Coal Company in Indiana County, in the early part of the 20th century. During this period the United States was becoming a major industrial and world power due in part to the presence and mining of coal and other abundant natural resources in the country. Many southern and eastern European immigrants were attracted to jobs in the mines and settled with their families in these towns. Through the use of photos, documents and memories of town residents, the site documents one represenrative western Pennsylvania coal town during its heyday. Susan Ferrandiz is the research/developer of the site. Her grandparents and their family lived in McIntyre.

Tunnelview Historic Site

http://www.indianacountyparks.org

Tunnelview Historic SiteThis 16 acre site, adjacent to the Conemaugh Dam in southwestern Indiana County, contains significant remnants of transportation history.

The Tunnelview tale begins with the Pennsylvania Mainline Canal. A 900' portion of canal visible at the site was part of the canal's Western division. The route extended from Pittsburgh to Johnstown, where the Allegheny Portage Railroad began. Once over the Alleghenies, passengers continued their trip to Harrisburg and Philadelphia.

Constructing the canal through the rugged terrain of the Alleghenies was a monumental undertaking. Faced with steep terrain and a sharp bend in the Conemaugh River, engineer Alonzo Livermore routed the canal through Bow Ridge, the narrow strip of land within the riverbend. Once through the tunnel, the canal continued over a stone arch aqueduct across the river. This was the only site on the canal with an aqueduct and tunnel next to one another.

The Western division of the canal operated until 1852, when maintenance problems, financial insolvency, and competition from the railroads brought an end to the brief canal era in Pennsylvania. The canal tunnel was sealed off as part of the Conemaugh flood control project in 1952.

By 1864, the Pennsylvania Railroad had constructed a new tunnel and stone arch bridge here for its subsidiary, the North West Railroad. The PRR completed construction of another tunnel here in 1907, when the railroad was realigned. This realignment required the construction of a stone arch bridge which still stands. The bridge withstood the 1936 Johnstown Flood. A sign on the stone arch bridge shows the high water mark.

In 1952 the PRR realigned its trackage again, and constructed the high level iron bridge standing today. Today the bridge carries trains of the Norfolk Southern Railway. A fourth tunnel was constructed through Bow Ridge in 1989 to deliver water to a nearby hydroelectric power station.



Homer City

map icon


Homer CityThe history of Homer City dates back to the mid 1700's, when settlers began to establish homesteads on lands previously owned by six Indian nations. The village of Homer City was laid out in 1854 by William Wilson, who named it after the ancient Greek poet, Homer. Although FMC Corporation is a major employer, there are many other businesses within the borough providing goods and services to our residents. These include a pharmacy, a bank, a grocery store, a department store, restaurants, a laundramat, barber shops, hair salons, physician's offices and other service oriented businesses, all of which are readily accessible. The Borough is a part of the Homer Center School District, with the schools being located just south of the Borough line. There is also a wide variety of residential housing available, from apartments and houses available to the general public to a senior citizen apartment complex. Homer City Borough is situated 6 miles from Indiana, 30 miles from Greensburg, 25 miles from Johnstown, and 50 miles from Pittsburgh. Homer City Electric Generating Station The Homer City Station, sitting high atop a plateau two miles south of the borough after which it is named, boasts the highest stack in the nation at 1,216 feet. The station has three generating units: two 600,000 kilowatt tandem compound turbine generators, and a third 620,000 kilowatt unit. The three units combined burn 700 tons of coal per hour - coal which is delivered by conveyers from deep mines. Coal is also trucked in from local strip mines. Transmission lines radiating from the Station, including the first extra-high-voltage line from western Pennsylvania to upstate New York, make it possible to move large amounts of power on a normal, as well as an emergency basis. This power moves to strategic points in both the PA-NJ-MD Interconnection and the NY Power Pool, two of the nation's major integrated power pools.

Ernest

ErnestOriginally a small coal mining town built by R&P Coal Company, it was named for Ernest Iselin, one of the owners of R&P. At one time, it had a company store which housed the post office. It also had an elementary school, a catholic school, and several mine offices including the company doctor's office. Now it is strictly residential. Many of the features that distinguished it as a coal mining town are now gone. There are, however, the old foundations of the coke ovens and the black boney that will continue to remind the residents of the once thriving town that it was.

The local Camp, known as the John T. Crawford Camp #43, was originally formed in 1904, and was named in honor of Major John T. Crawford, a former attorney and physician, who enlisted in the 63rd Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry. He was soon promoted to Brigade Surgeon. While tending to his wounded men in Virginia, Major Crawford contracted typhoid fever, and was sent home to recuperate in May 1862. After returning home, the disease worsened, and on June 7, 1862, he died from its effects. His wife, Sarah Colwell Crawford, for whom the Auxiliary is named, never remarried, and remained in Kittanning until her death in 1912. She received a widow's pension of $25.00 per month. Both she and her husband are buried in Kittanning Cemetery. The Camp phased out of existence in 1936, when membership dwindled, due to the deaths of many members and the lack of interest of the next generation. The Auxiliary, however, remained functional until the mid 1950's, when it too lost its charter. Both the Camp and Auxiliary began reformation activities in 1989, and both were re-chartered in 1990. Both groups are quite active in numerous activities, including parades, grave dedications, and Memorial Day services throughout the area.

The railroad corridor has been recycled into a popular rails-to-trails project known as the Ghost Town Trail. In 1993 the Cambria & Indiana Railroad donated an additional four miles of railroad line from Rexis to White Mill Station known as the Rexis Branch. Access points: Saylor Park; Heshbon; Dilltown; Wehrum; Vintondale, Rexis; Red Mill; Twin Rocks; Nanty Glo; and Ebensburg -- In 1991, the Kovalchick Salvage Company donated sixteen miles of the former Blacklick and Ebensburg Railroad to Indiana County Parks. The railroad corridor has been recycled into a popular rails-to-trails project known as the Ghost Town Trail. In 1993, the Cambria & Indiana Railroad donated an additional four miles of railroad line from Rexis to White Mill Station known as the Rexis Branch. In 2005, an additional 20 miles were added to the trail - 12 miles in Indiana County and 8 miles in Cambria County. The trail is designated as a National Recreation Trail by the U.S. Department of the Interior. The Ghost Town Trail derives its name from five mining towns that once existed along the railroad corridor. Wehrum, the largest of the former mining towns, once boasted 230 homes, a hotel, company store, jail and bank. The town was developed by Warren Delano, uncle of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

Smicksburg - An Amish Settlement

map icon

http://www.smicksburg.net

Smicksburg - An Amish SettlementStep back into time as you travel to Northern Indiana County, home of a large Amish population which has grown to over 800 settlers since 1961. The Amish pursue a simpler lifestyle, operating farms and other businesses in ways that have changed little in the past century. Take notice of the fields being farmed with horses, and the small school houses where young children play in simple clothing as you drive through the beautiful countryside with rolling hills and gentle curves. The people are hospitable and wave as you go by, but please be careful to respect their lifestyle and take no pictures of the Amish folk. Drive slowly through the area being courteous to Amish traveling in horse-drawn buggies, and enjoy over 20 specialty shops along the way, offering country crafts, quilts, furniture, and foods. Smicksburg or "Schmicksburg," West Mahoning Township, Route 954 was founded in May of 1827 by Reverend J. George Schmick. Reverend Schmick was a Lutheran minister who purchased land from Charles Coleman. The Smicksburg Post Office opened October 1, 1830. John Kerr was the postmaster at that time. Kerr was also the blacksmith. The borough was incorporated in 1854. Before leaving the Smicksburg area, be sure to visit Windgate Winery located on Hemlock Acres Road, just off Rt. 954.?Schedule a tour of The McCormick Mansion nearby on SR 4018.

The Eliza Iron FurnaceThe Eliza Furnace is a National Register site regarded as one of Pennsylvania's best preserved iron furnaces. Dating from 1846 the Eliza Furnace is one of only a few iron furnaces remaining in the United States which still retains its original heat exchanger piping. The two-acre site is leased to Indiana County by the Cambria County Historical Society. Eliza Furnace was constructed in 1845 and 1846. At its peak, the furnace employed over 90 people and utilzed 45 mules to produce about 1,080 tons of iron a year. The furnace was not a financial success, and operated only three years. Difficulties in transporting iron by teams of horses to Ninevah on the Pennsylvania Canal, poor-quality local ore, and a significant drop in iron prices sealed the furnace's fate. Despite its early closing, Eliza Furnace helped bring the industrial revolution to the Blacklick Valley. A detailed history of the furnace is available here in PDF format. Additional information about Eliza Furnace and other iron furnaces in Pennsylvania can be found at the Industrial Archeology and PA Iron Furnace Sourcebook websites.

Heilwood

map icon

www.heilwood.com

Beginning as early as 1899, a coal broker from Williamsport by way of Philadelphia began buying coal lands in and around Indiana County.  By 1904, John Heisley Weaver, the coal broker would begin construction of his ‘model town’ to be called ‘Heilwood’.  The name of the town was probably a corruption of this own nick name ‘Heil’ and another coal mining town in West Virginia.  Although he would sell all his holdings, including the town of Heilwood in 1906, the foundation of the town had been laid out for the purchasing company, The Penn Mary Coal Company.  Within 6 years, the town would have almost 400 houses; a hospital; a dairy; a company store / post office; churches; schools; a town hall with bowling alleys / barber shop.  The near by mines would employ almost 1,000 workers at their peak. The town could be proud of its heritage as having: the first building in Indiana County erected solely as a hospital-1909; the organization of the first Boy Scout Troop in Indiana County-1911; and having the first American Legion Post formed in Indiana County following World War II-1946.

Glen Campbell

map icon


Glen Campbell, the first coal town in Indiana County, was founded in 1889. It was named for Cornelius Campbell, the first superintendent of the Glenwood Coal Company, the enterprise which initiated mining operations in the area. The town experienced immediate growth and soon a number of coal companies were operating in and around the community. In 1894, just five years after its inception, Glen Campbell was incorporated as a borough. The town quickly became the service, business, and shopping center for a number of smaller mining communities that sprang up in northern Indiana County. By 1900 Glen Campbell was the third largest town in Indiana County. It also had the distinction of being the county's fastest growing community. In fact, residents of the community felt it was feasible, with such growth , that eventually the county seat would have to be moved to Glen Campbell. The town was serviced by both the Pennsylvania and New York Central railroads. In addition to coal mining, there were a number of lumber mills. In 1905 the Giant Electric Light, Heat, and Power Company opened operations in Glen Campbell. The company provided electricity to communities in northern Indiana and southern Clearfield counties. Other industries included a brickyard which was established on the Cush Creek, a stream that flows through the community, and a cooper's shop which manufactured barrels. Later a battery factory was opened. There also were plans for the construction of a foundry and a furniture factory. At its height of prosperity, the town had approximately 60 businesses. There was an opera house and a nickelodeon. The community boasted its own school system, which included a high school. There were a number of dentists and doctors. One doctor even operated an infirmary for the miners. The borough had its own bank, the First National Bank of Glen Campbell. A number of newspapers were published in the town and many social organizations sprang up. Unfortunately, the bubble burst. Labor unrest, the decline in coal output, the depletion of the timber stocks, and a number of disastrous fires left Glen Campbell in a serious financial dilemma. The Great Depression of the 1930's dealt the town its final and most crippling blow. The bank was forced to close permanently and a number of businesses either folded or moved elsewhere. The community never recovered from the trauma and continued its spiraling decline. Although its heyday has long since passed, the town still has the capability of attracting notoriety. It received national attention in 1971 when Glen Campbell, the country music singer, made a surprise visit. The trip was featured in a TV Guide article later that year. Although no longer the size it once was, Glen Campbell continues to function in its own right. The town's fire company provides fire protection to a number of communities in the area. Its three churches (Methodist, Baptist, and Roman Catholic) all have active congregations. Social organizations include the American Legion and the Glen Campbell Fireman's Auxiliary. The town's post office still provides rural services to a large area surrounding the borough. There are a number of businesses, including some which are coal related, that call Glen Campbell home.

Blairsville

map icon

http://www.blairsvillepa.net/

BlairsvilleFounded in 1818 at the junction of the Northern Turnpike and the Conemaugh River, the town prospered with the completion of the Pennsylvania Main Line Canal. A slackwater pool allowed access from the canal basin at Bairdstown to docks, warehouses, and boatyards at Blairsville. Local industries, including foundries, coal mines, and salt works, thrived with the advent of this cheap and reliable means of transportation. The first branch of the Pennsylvania Railroad existing in Indiana County was built in Blairsville in 1851. In 1860, the Western Pennsylvania Railroad was organized and headquartered here, creating an important rail center in Indiana County. Notable sites remaining in Blairsville include the National Guard Armory (1909) at 199 N. Walnut Street; St. Peter's Episcopal Church (1830) on West Campbell Street; the Pennsylvania Railroad Depot (1893), now a financial institution on E. Market Street; and the old Pennsylvania Railroad freight house (1907) behind the old depot. Visit the museum operated by the Historical Society of the Blairsville Area, 116 E. Campbell Street, to travel back to these significant days in our transportation heritage. Open Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday from 10 a.m to 2 p.m. For more information call 724-459-0580.

Clymer

map icon


ClymerTravel through history and notice that not only the town, but also several streets are named for signers of the Declaration of Independence. The town was founded in 1905 and named in honor of George Clymer, who was also a signer of the Constitution of the United States. Notable sites include the Dillen Boarding House (1905), now a private residence on Hancock Street, probably the first place of business in Clymer; the Streetcar Station (1908) on South Sixth Street, which provided service to the Indiana area until 1927; and a Mine Disaster plaque in front of the Clymer Borough Building on South Sixth Street, commemorating the terrible explosion at Sample Run Mine in 1926 that took the lives of 44 mine workers. Clymer Borough is located in Cherryhill Township at the intersection of Routes 286 and 403. The Clearfield Bituminous Coal Corporation and affiliated coal companies formed it. The Indiana County Gazette, on April 13, 1904 reported a company was organized "last night" at a meeting in Indiana by Messrs, Rembrandt and Frank Peale, New York; C.C. Springer, Boston; J.L. Mitchell, Philadelphia; Harry and J.O. Clark, Glen Campbell; E.H. Ellsworth, Superintendent Arcadia Coal Company; and M.C. Watson, Indiana. The group owned 10,000 acres of coal land on Two Lick Creek. "Opening will be made and a town will be laid out." The first sale of lots was held on October 11 and 12, 1905. Clymer Borough was named at the suggestion of John S. Fisher in honor of George Clymer, a signer of the Declaratoin of Independence and Constitution of the United States. A hundred years before, George Clymer had donated land in Indiana for the County seat. The main street was named Franklin Street in honor of Benjamin Franklin. Many of the other streets were named for other signers of the Declaration of Independence. Clymer was planned as an opened town contrary to other company owned mining towns. Clymer grew to be the largest coal-mining town in Indiana County. The Post Office was opened in February 8, 1906 and J. Ward Houck was the postmaster. The borough was incorporated February 29, 1908.

Cherry Tree

Cherry TreeCherry Tree borough wasn't inhabited until 1822. It was originally known as Canoe Place which was where canoe travel on the Susquehanna West Branch ended as noted on Schull's map of 1770 and on the Warrant Survey A63-263, surveyed by William P. Brady for John Nicholson on August 23, 1794. Cherry Tree has always been known for several names applicable in one way or another including, Bardville, Campville, Grant, Newman Mill, New Lancaster and Canoe Place In 1833, Peter Newman purchased a gristmill which had been erected in 1826 or 1827 by William Sebring. He named the village Newman's Mill and was the first postmaster of Newman's Mill when it opened on January 3, 1842. On November 10, 1864, the name was changed to Grant P.O. until 1907. Thereafter to the present it has been known as Cherry Tree. Cherry Tree Borough was incorporated April 30, 1855 by Act of General Assembly from parts of Cambria, Clearfield, and Indiana Counties. It was named after a large wild cherry tree, which stands at the spot now marked by a large monument erected by the state in 1894. The monument also marked the corner of the property purchase of Indian lands at the Treaty of Fort Stanwix at Rome, NY, November 5, 1768. In June of 1905, the rails of New York Central (NYC) and PA Railroads were interconnected at Cherry Tree and the two began jointly to construct a new and unique railroad 22.25 miles to Clymer and Dixonville terminating at Sample Run and La Rayne. Each railroad operated its own rolling stock. PA Railroad and NYC began passenger service on April 1, 1907. NYC later ended its passenger service in February 1933 and PA Railroad ended their passenger service on October 4, 1947. Cherry Tree also had a male and female college, which was incorporated by Act of the General Assembly on April 14, 1868. It is said the school opened in 1870 but the venture was unsuccessful and ceased in 1874.

Located on Route 286, southwest of Indiana, PA

http://www.visitsaltsburg.com

Saltsburg was founded by Andrew Boggs in 1816.  It was named for the early salt industry established along the Conemaugh and Kiskiminetas Rivers.  From 1829 through 1864, Saltsburg was an important stop along the Western Division of the Pennsylvania Main Line Canal.  The canal running through Saltsburg connected the cities of Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, serving as a major route for transporting both goods and passengers.  Today the Saltsburg Canal Park preserves this historic area and educates visitors about the rich heritage of the town during the Canal Period. Recently, Saltsburg was designated as a Trail Town by the Greensburg Progress Fund and serves as a hub for the West Penn and Westmoreland Heritage Trails.  From Saltsburg, bikers and hikers can travel east on the West Penn Trail toward the towns of White Station, Tunnelton, and Blairsville including a stop at the Conemaugh Dam Recreation Area, or a short distance north toward the neighboring town of Avonmore.  Also, trail users can take the Westmoreland Heritage Trail going west toward Slickville and then on to Delmont.  This totals an approximate distance of 20.5  miles for trail enthusiasts. Situated along the Conemaugh and Kiskiminetas Rivers, Saltsburg offers opportunities for fishing, boating, and kayaking.  In addition, it is an access point on the Kiski-Conemaugh Water trail that ends at Freeport, offering 28 miles of river travel and recreation.
