The impact of many transportation eras can be experienced throughout Blairsville, where remnants of towns lost to flood control are reminders of changing views of modernization. Once a canal and stagecoach town, Blairsville became an important center for the growth of the Pennsylvania Railroad and a critical stop on the Underground Railroad. Nestled at the foothills of the Laurel Highlands, the Blairsville Riverfront Trail is bordered by Regional Trails.
