Improving Quality of Life

I love the quality of life to share with friends and family in Indiana County. It is a great place to raise a family and I know folks who moved here after retirement. People in rural Pennsylvania are very kind hearted and rally around their neighbors when they need support. Furthermore, we have county parks and hiking trails, covered bridges, museums, many fairs and festivals, historical attractions, and beautiful scenery and rural enterprises. I will continue to ensure our rural assets are protected and maintained. 

Things to Do and See in Indiana County

“Experience the beautiful country scenery of rolling farmland, the clatter of horses pulling buggies, browsing in the quaint shops and tasting the local cuisine. Shoppers can enjoy selections of pottery, locally made wine and cheese, country crafts, quilts, Amish furniture and baked goods, and a community of Old Order Amish families.” —Visit Indiana County PA
