VISITING ALLEGANY COUNTY PROVIDES YOU AN INSTANT “RELAX BUTTON”
SO CLOSE BUT A WORLD AWAY
There’s a naturally soothing thing that happens as visitors drive along I-68 or any of a dozen country roads into the mountains of Allegany County. The pervasive busy buzz of nearby suburban and urban centers fades quickly to an authentic small town lifestyle defined by the same beautiful valleys and wooded ridges that greeted young George Washington as he explored the Upper Potomac.
CONNECTING WITH NATURE
Being in Allegany County guarantees to be only a few minutes and a few steps from outdoor adventure - mild or wild. With over 60,000 acres of preserved public land, many miles of nationally recognized hiking and cycling trails, we offer nature experiences that range from rugged remote wonders to relaxing rail trails.
Our small town charm flows gracefully from a rich colonial history that began along America’s first frontier. These early historic events and places are still here to discover, surrounded by the architectural vibe of the early 20th century when our location as a passage through the Allegheny Front brought canals, railroads and scenic roads through here.
