Located within the western lands of Pennsylvania's vast wilderness and rolling mountains, Forest County is known for its natural beauty and industrial history. With the Allegheny National Forest dominating the locale, Forest County is the third least populated county in Pennsylvania. Being recognized as an excellent place for outdoor adventures, the county is also known for its simplicity and for not having one traffic light within its boundaries. Over time, many have come to Forest County seeking opportunity and prosperity. When the surrounding counties were experiencing an oil boom, Forest County was exploring the lumber industry and dominating the business. To the hunters and fisherman that settled in Forest County, the wilderness was a utopia ripe with panther, deer, bear, wolves, bass, salmon, trout, and pike. The area is still revered for its vast wilds, which lend themselves to various recreational activities throughout the year.
