Although the Southern Alleghenies is a relatively rural region, it benefits from a proximity to the major business and government hubs of
Pittsburgh, Harrisburg, and Washington, D.C. Two interstate highways intersect the region, and it has been gradually transforming from one
reliant on heavy manufacturing and mining to one more diversified in agriculture, health care, tourism, warehousing distribution, retail,
defense and professional and technical services, as well as a variety of industrial companies.
