About houston, pennsylvania

Washington County possesses three gorgeous county park facilities: Mingo Creek, Cross Creek and Ten Mile Creek Parks. Mingo and Cross Creek parks are open all year and are home to three covered bridges. There are plenty of sports activities – participatory and spectator alike – as well as cultural and historical celebrations, special events and festivals. Canonsburg Town Park, Charleroi Trustee Community Park and Monongahela Chess Park are attractive examples of the way each borough and township around the county make every effort to provide green public space for the enjoyment of their residents. Annual events at the park include nature walks, hayrides, day camps, needle and yarn workshops, arts and crafts and the popular Covered Bridge Festival.

The county also boasts a major university, three colleges, three premier hospitals and efficient access to all cultural, retail and sports activities in the Pittsburgh region. The low cost of living is second only to the high quality of life. We are proud that our county has continued to grow while maintaining the natural integrity of our land.
