________INTRODUCTION and WELCOME TO MEADVILLE, PENNSYLVANIA ___________

 

 

 

 

Nestled quietly in the hills of Western Pennsylvania lies a small, rural community that dates back to 1788. It was originally a settlement founded by the Mead family that was used as a stopping off point for travelers on their way to Erie. Such well known people as General George Washington and the Marquis de LaFayette were documented as visiting the city during their travels.

 

When lifelong resident Dr. Clifton Barretta was asked why he and his wife raise their young family in Meadville, he stated "Meadville is a great place to live". He goes on, "there is something for just about everyone in Meadville. It has a little of everything. Living in a college community, we have cultural offerings and a diversity of activities." Certainly, he notes, the cost of living is a draw. "It is very reasonable to live in or visit Meadville." And, even though the the cost of living is low, the offerings are numerous. "Meadville has a public education system that offers its children a diversity of activities and sports that you may not find in many small towns." Plus, he speaks to the protective services as well as the close proximity of the "big cities" in the Tristate area. Plus, "when you live here, the location allows us to drive to so many places on the East Coast in only a day or so." (C. Barretta, personal communication, November 7,2006.)

 

Whether you are a history buff, outdoorsman, fan of the arts, or a passer-by, you are sure to find something of interest in this community. The content of this site covers a broad range of information including: demographics, history, and health and safety. The community offers family fun and country living while conveniently located within reasonable driving distance of two major cities, Pittsburgh and Erie.
