Rebirth of a City - Downtown Connellsville
Welcome to Downtown Connellsville, Pennsylvania

The City of Connellsville is located in the north central section of Fayette County and is approximately two square miles with thirty seven miles of road located within the city limits. The two primary roadways in the city’s downtown area are Crawford Avenue and Pittsburgh Street. State Route 119 also runs through the city. The city business district is located on the east side of Crawford Avenue and Pittsburgh Street. The City of Connellsville has many landmarks including two beautiful parks. The Youghiogheny River and the Great Allegheny Passage Bike Hike Trail are located in the heart of downtown.  The new Amtrak station was completed in the summer of 2011. The newly built Connellsville Canteen is now open and houses a WWII Museum and Harry Clark's Great Indian Creak Rail Road Display.  Come in for a cup of coffee, or plan to see a show at our stage door canteen!  The Historic Aarons building is getting renovated and updated as a Conference Center and should be opening in 2015!
