Trail Towns

www.trailtowns.org

Connellsville is proud to be one of the "Trail Towns". The Great Allegheny Passage is a 132-mile rail-turned-trail that has become a main thoroughfare for cyclists seeking wild rivers, peaks and valleys, and heritage-soaked towns. The Passage, which connected to the C&O Canal Towpath to Washington, D.C. in 2006, attracts national and international visitors throughout much of the year.

The connection of the Passage and Towpath links two world-class cities (Pittsburgh and Washington) and is driving a surge in bike traffic. The Trail Town Program is responding with expertise and loans for small businesses, market information for investors who want to come along for the ride, and business district planning for communities enjoying the biking boom.

The Trail Town Program envisions a corridor of revitalized trailside communities along the Great Allegheny Passage that reap the economic benefits of trail-based tourism and recreation as part of a larger, coordinated approach to regional economic development.

Mr. Geyer built the theater in 1900 and was very successful in establishing the Opera House as a popular social venue which had the honor of hosting many notable theatrical and musical performers. Most famous of its guests were William Jennings Bryan and Nanette Fabray.

The Geyer Performing Arts Center remains the owner of the building today and continues the tradition of hosting theatrical talent as it once did in its hey-day.  The Arts Center is the only cultural outlet in Scottdale Borough and a tangible link to it prosperous past.

Come and visit a living piece of Scottdale’s glory. Perform on stage, book your show, volunteer, or just relax and enjoy a performance in our air conditioned theater. The Geyer Performing Arts Center is your hometown venue to see and be great live entertainment!
