Come Home to Your First Frontier
These mountains were our first frontier…challenging us to work harder…do great things……..
Blair County, PA was our nation’s First Frontier and we have launched our new website and Facebook page to celebrate our history and embrace the current and next generation of pioneers, investors and inventors.
As the first pioneers moved westward, they encountered the great Allegheny Front. These mountains and river valleys are where early American families set up camp, villages and towns. The push to deliver goods and people over the Front spurred new innovations. The Pennsylvania Canal, Allegheny Portage Railroad and the Horseshoe Curve gave rise to the Pennsylvania Railroad.
Join our efforts to retain and attract the next generation of pioneers, inventors and investors home to these mountains and valleys. Visit our website and facebook page, share them with your colleagues and families, utilize them within your own companies and organizations, and join us as First Frontier Guides.
