Many places say they’re “Someplace Special.” We invite
you to see why this town really lives up to that claim.
Spe•cial [spesh-uhl] – adjective
– of a distinct or particular kind or character
– different from what is ordinary or usual
Located along the Ohio River just 40 minutes northwest of Pittsburgh and only 20 minutes from the Pittsburgh International Airport, this vibrant small town combines all the beauty and charm of its 200-year history with a thriving 21st-Century energy that provides the best of all worlds in schools, property values, convenience, recreation and health care.
Our scenic town boasts broad, tree-lined streets, thriving downtown,
lots of public parks and churches, year-round activities and events, and
a convenient and very
safe community environment in which to live. Most of Beaver is on
Register of Historic Places and it is named as a “Tree City
USA”. The school system and public library are both top rated, and
there is a national award-winning historical museum.
