User-submitted facts and corrections:

  • Scottdale, Pa is a beautiful town in which to live. Back in the days when Pittsburgh was the steel town of america many wealthy barrons made their home in Scottdale. As a matter of fact Scottdale once had the most millionairs living in one place at one time in the world. Now the millionairs are gone; however, their beautiful large homes remain. It's such a joy just to take a quiet walk down the tree lined slate side walks and admire these homes- many of which are still lived in and maintained.
