Leechburg, PA

Pros: A very nice residential community, with a stable downtown area...

Cons: The economy of the area makes it difficult for the local government to do all of the things that they wish they had the money to do.

This is a good place to raise a family.

General info: One of the only remaining Democratic Party strongholds in Armstrong County...
