Somerset, PA.

It was in the news a few years ago. Shanksville was where the fourth plane crashed on 9/11.

The next summer, we had the "9 for 9" frenzy when nine miners got trapped underground and subsequently rescued.

Somerset, PA and the surrounding area is notable for a lot of colonial history. The Whiskey Rebellion happened here, and George Washington passed through here as a soldier in the French & Indian War.

Fredericksburg is a pretty neat little city, I go there on weekends to Central Park. We usually go to Bailey's Grill and Pub, they have some good food, not to mention I just like the bar. Never really went to any of the historical sites though, are they any good?

My junior and senior year I played in the Windber Rotary basketball tournament. My coach is originally from Windber. My girlfriend's aunt, uncle, and cousins live in Somerset.

If you're ever up for a search, check the memorial wall for a "Lakeview Basketball" beanie. I put it on there last year when we visited.

Scranton Pa, not where i live but like 5 minutes away.

The nation's first successful, continuously-operating electrified streetcar (trolley) system was established in the city in 1886, giving it the nickname "The Electric City".

The show The Office is set here and caused everyone to become obsessed with it

The events described in the song "30,000" pounds of bananas took place here.

Thats about it

Charleston, WV

It's the largest city (metropolitan population of over 300,000 people) as well as the capitol city of West Virginia. First established by Col George Clendenin as 'Fort Lee' at the confluence of the Elk and Kanawha Rivers, it eventually became a major salt production center, the largest in the US until after the Civil War. The first brine wells in the US were sunk there in the late 1700's and the first natural gas well soon followed. The discovery of the abundant coal fields in the area were a result of the need for a fuel source for evaporating the brine into salt. The battle of Charleston (1862) was fought between 5,000 Confederate troops and a similar number of Federal troops which resulted in the confederate occupation of the city for the following 6 weeks. After that point, the Federal forces, realizing that Charleston was the sole inland salt-producing region of the south, returned with over 10,000 troops and occupied Charleston and the other salt-producing areas of the Kanawha valley and it's confluence with the Ohio essentially depriving the south of it's ability to provide salt for curing and preserving it's food which helped to disrupt the supply chain of the armies of the Confederacy as well as deprive the south's few industries the means to make gun-powder. Federal control of Charleston also ensured the needed coal to fuel the steel furnaces in Wheeling, WV and Pittsburgh, PA.

After the civil war, Charleston faded in importance due to the construction of the Erie canal and it's ability to provide salt to the west via the great lakes (until this time it was floated down the Kanawha on flat-boats and then up or down the Ohio river) It wasn't until the outbreak of WWI that Charleston would become important yet again in the matters of industry. The need for chlorine and caustic acid for use in both chemical and conventional warheads. Continued manufacturing and chemical growth occurred with the outbreak of WWII. The railroad system in place for delivery of salt, coal, and chemicals as well as the now navigable Kanawha River made it the ideal place to build the largest synthetic rubber plant in the nation at that time. Several munitions and weapons factories again located to the region due to the close resources and transportation network. In the 1940's after the war, Charleston saw even more economic development due to Eisenhower's decision to join interstates 77, 79, and 64 in the city's center. The building of Kanawha (now Yeager) Airport also brought focus to the town as it was one of the first local airports built for general and commercial aviation outside of the major metropolitan areas.
