Cameron County, Pennsylvania

 Cameron County flagCameron County is the commonwealth’s second smallest in both land area, at 398 square miles, and population. In 2020, according to the census, the population was 4,546.  It is considered an 8th class county. Cameron County was founded and formed on March 29, 1860 from parts of McKean, Elk, Clearfield, Clinton, and Potter counties. Emporium, the county seat, was incorporated into the county October 13, 1864. The county was instrumental in producing dynamite used in making the Panama Canal. It also produced war munitions for the American Expeditionary Forces during World War I. As America returned to a peacetime economy, Emporium became the home of the Incandescent Lamp Company later known as Sylvania Electronics. During World War II, the proximity fuse was invented in the county to allow bombs to explode at predetermined levels instead of on impact. In recent years, the county was the heart of the powdered metal industry. The county is the birthplace of famous screen and TV star Tom Mix. Another favorite son is Rick Peltz, federal co-chair of the Appalachian Regional Commission. The flagstone surrounding the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery was quarried here. The county was one of several to contribute sharp shooters and is the sight of the disembarkation of the famous Bucktail Brigade during the Civil War. An outdoor paradise, the county boasts opportunities for hunters, fishermen, and nature enthusiasts. It has a reputation for its natural beauty. It is a great escape for people living the hectic rush of city life, but residents here call it a “beautiful place to live.” It is located in the "Heart of the PA Wilds."
