If you mean Frankstown Mountain in Hollidaysburg, pa than i can help ya its situated in central pa in a small town, its not a bad town but its typical small town with its small town traps. i guess it would help to try to explain the geography of that particular area. frankstown mountian is accessed by a main road that goes over the mountain (right off I-99 [a looong interstate that runs up the middle of pennsylvania] so its easily accessible) there are several nice communites that branch off of the main road - Sylvan east (name of the community) and Stonehedge (name of the road that branches off into a community) are a couple that come to mind. there are several others but i never really took notice of the name of the road. once you go over the mountain (away from I-99) you get into the "backwoods" and theres this little road you can turn onto (to the left). at first it might look kinda ghetto but just keep going and you end up in some nice communities. these communities are less expensive then the ones right off the mountain but still nice. i live back there and its wonderful becuase youre surrounded by a bunch of houses that seem isolated from the busy world. youre surrounded by mountains and trees, there arent any street lights back there so you can see the sky at night andn lots of stars. theres an elementary school back there thats nice (i used to volunteer there in high school). if you go further (past the intersection) you get into old houses that arent as nice. its not a bad area at all, if there were any job potentials in that area i probably would have stayed but alas no job = no money = no house. anyways, the rest of town isnt bad, theres just NOTHING to do.

but yea, thats only if youre talking about Frankstown in Hollidaysburg sorry if you werent and you had to read that really long post

I love the Frankstown area, I agree with the post ad. We moved S. for work, but we plan to retire back in Hollidaysburg PA.
If you have $ you can purchase nice property for the a reasonable price, jobs are hard to come by, unless your a professional.
Also you must love the cold and snow in the winter months, the change of seasons are great!
