About Cresson

Cresson, Pennsylvania







Cresson is a borough in Cambria CountyPennsylvaniaUnited States. Cresson is 80 miles (130 km) east ofPittsburgh. It is above 2,000 feet (600 m) in elevation. Lumber, coal, and coke yards were industries that had supported the population which numbered 1,470 in 1910. The borough is part of the Johnstown Metropolitan Statistical Area, although state and local sources list it as part of the Altoona area due to being much closer to that city. The population of Cresson at the 2010 census was 1,711.

The location was named in 1854 as a memorial to philanthropist Elliott Cresson. Railroads, beginning with the Allegheny Portage Railroad, fueled the growth of the area. Many famous Pittsburgh businessmen, including Charles M. SchwabAndrew Carnegie, and Henry Clay Frick, maintained summer residences in the area.

The borough was incorporated in 1906, along with neighboring Sankertown.

Cresson is located in eastern Cambria County at 40°27′45″N 78°35′11″W (40.462631, -78.586319), atop the Eastern Continental Divide, the height of land between the Eastern Seaboard of the United States and the Ohio River valley. The Little Conemaugh River rises in Cresson, flowing southwest to form the Conemaugh River, which in turn flows to the Kiskiminetas River, then the Allegheny River, the Ohio River, and finally the Mississippi. The north side of Cresson, meanwhile, drains north to Clearfield Creek, a tributary of the West Branch of the Susquehanna River, leading to Chesapeake Bay. Two miles (3 km) east of town is Blair Gap at the eastern edge of the Allegheny Plateau. The gap is the location of the Allegheny Portage Railroad National Historic Site, at the height of land where the first railroad (a portage railway) crossed the Allegheny Mountains.

Cresson is bypassed to the south and east by U.S. Route 22, a four-lane expressway, with access from two exits:Pennsylvania Route 53 (Second Street) on the south, and the Admiral Peary Highway (former US 22) on the east.Altoona is 15 miles (24 km) to the northeast via US 22 and Interstate 99, while Ebensburg, the Cambria County seat, is 8 miles (13 km) to the west.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the borough has a total area of 0.48 square miles (1.25 km2), all of it land.










Stereographs of R.A. Bonine
