Community Profile

Indiana is a borough, and the county seat of Indiana County, Pennsylvania, located 90 minutes east of Downtown Pittsburgh. The County's population is approximately 89,000 and stable, with a concentration of about 23,000 permanent population within and around the borough limits. The economy in the area is driven primarily by services and farming, and the county proclaims itself the "Christmas Tree Capital of the World", shipping over one million trees annually.

Indiana was the hometown of actor Jimmy Stewart (1908-1997), who was born there and lived at 104 North 7th Street. On May 20, 1983, Stewart was given a 75th birthday celebration by the town. A museum to his memory was opened on the third floor of the local public library, and a bronze statue of Stewart was erected in his honor at the county courthouse. The town annually holds a Jimmy Stewart film festival as part of the town's "It's a Wonderful Life" holiday celebration.

Indiana, Pennsylvania is a growing community with an active Chamber of Commerce, Visitors Bureau and Economic Development. Relocation to Indiana offers affordable living with excellent schools and low taxes. Indiana County is home to Indiana University of Pennsylvania (or IUP), a public university founded in 1875. With over 15,000 students, it is the largest university in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education. It offers over 100 undergraduate majors and is the only doctoral degree-granting institution in the system.

For public K-12 education, the Indiana Area School District supports four neighborhood elementary schools (Eisenhower Elementary, Horace Mann, East Pike, and Ben Franklin), a middle school and high school (Indiana Area Senior High School), which are accredited and recognized for quality. A Catholic-affiliated Pre-K through grade 6 program is offered at the St. Bernard School, in addition to two K-12 Christian schools in the area.

There are a great many activities available for children and adults alike. The university brings a large variety of cultural events to the community, and these have increased with the completion and opening of a 5,000 seat event center within sight of the medical center.

Outdoor opportunities abound. Indiana County's parks and trails system is one of the best in Pennsylvania with over 64 miles of rails to trails. The county boasts 792 acres of lakes; 5,452 acres of parks; and 12 miles of single track mountain bike trails. Couple this amount of acreage with the varied skill level of terrain and you have a dynamite combination!

Many of the biking and hiking trails run along historic paths with interesting lessons to be learned. So don't think your nature walk or bike ride will go without any history lessons. It's an especially great way to incorporate educational opportunities having children realize that history is part of everything we do and live.

Indiana County hosts 31 Fairs and Festivals including the annual Indiana County Fair next to the hospital, Thunder Mountain Lenape Nation Native American Festival, Pick-A-Dilly Herb Faire and the Saltsburg Canal Days. These are just a few of an extensive celebration of ethnic, cultural and agricultural fairs and festivals.
