In the southwest portion of Pennsylvania, northwest of Pittsburgh, is where beautiful Beaver County is located. Founded in March of 1880, it consists of 2 third class cities which are Aliquippa and Beaver Falls, along with 52 boroughs and townships. It is situated immediately east of Ohio and the panhandle of West Virginia. The county’s motto is “Divided by its rivers, United by its people”. The Ohio River enters at the southeast of the county, flows to the center and exits between Ohio and West Virginia on the southwest portion. Situated in the foothills and valleys of the Appalachian Mountain Range, it provides spacious lots for single family homes and many river communities.
At one point in time dominating the steel industry, it is now mainly comprised of smaller manufacturing and service industries. It contains four public parks, Racoon State Park and many community parks that make recreational activities abundant. Many of the older river front communities are being converted into beautiful, serene walking destinations.
Located just north of Pittsburgh, Beaver County residents can enjoy the amenities of big city living without the crowds and congestion day in and day out. Hop in the car and head to a Steelers, Penguins, or Pirates game. Maybe catch a show at one of the many theaters or venues downtown. The entertainment possibilities are endless.
The county is home to 15 public school districts, a Vocational Technical School, it’s own two year community college, along with Geneva College and Penn State University’s Beaver campus. The numerous educational facilities provide the tools for residents to grow and prosper.
There are many historical sites including Fort Macintosh, Legionville and numerous others that are scattered amongst the county.
Heritage Valley Health Systems at the Beaver Medical Center, Sewickley, as well as Aliquippa Community Hospital service the residents in all their health care needs.
Beaver County is a good place to live, work and play.
Beaver County Tow is proud to call Beaver County home.
