Located 45 miles north of Pittsburgh
and 80 miles south east of Cleveland, Ohio, the county has a diverse cultural heritage, quaint villages, scenic beauty, and abundance of community activities.
Restaurants offering the cuisines of the Italian, Polish, Middle Eastern, Slovenian and Irish cultures are located here in addition to a number of historical museums plus a genealogical research facility dedicated to locating the ancestry of many Pennsylvanians. The heritage of the area also produced the theme of Fireworks Capital of America. At one time there were more fireworks manufactured in Lawrence County than in any other part of the United States. Two fireworks display companies are still located in the community. The scenic beauty of the rural countryside provides hiking trails, rivers for fishing and canoeing, two historic covered bridges, a world class white water stream, plus a state park containing house-sized boulders created by the meltwater of the last glacial age.
