Buttermilk Falls Natural Area. This site features an impressive 45-foot waterfall and scenic woodland. The 48-acre natural area was donated to Indiana County Parks in 1995 by the Keystone-Conemaugh Group, owners of the nearby Conemaugh Generating Station. As a natural area, the site has been set aside to protect both typical and unique plant and animal communities and to protect outstanding examples of natural beauty. Between 1931 and 1956 the property was owned by Fred McFeely, grandfather of Fred Rogers of children's television fame. McFeely, a wealthy industrialist from Latrobe, PA, utilized the property as a retreat. His estate featured a cottage, horse stables, a three-car garage, outbuildings and a swimming area in the creek above the falls. Mr. Rogers often visited the site as a child. Stone foundations and retaining walls from the estate are visible at the site.

    Success Stories

    When craft beer was a cool new trend in the cities, we were non-trepreneurs who worked our day jobs and home-brewed as a hobby.  Then we became obsessed with the idea of opening Levity Brewing Co. in Indiana, and suddenly the list of things and knowledge we needed became enormous.  The SBDC took our energy […]
