The seat for rural Armstrong County, the town of Kittanning is a community of 5,000 people nestled along the east bank of the Allegheny River.
The name means "at the great stream" in the Delaware (Native American) language and was the site of an important battle of the French & Indian War (1754-1763). Throughout the 20th century, Kittaning was home to large iron and steelworks as well as lumber mills and other kinds of factories.
Kittaning's central business district features many handsome, historic structures. These include 1858 Armstrong County Couthouse built in the Greek Revival style; Merchants National Bank, an ornate building originally constructed in 1886 to house a department store; and the Romanesque style Grace Presbyterian Church, built in 1910.
Varies per business.
