Beaver County PA
Beaver County, western Pennsylvania, U.S., bordered to the west by Ohio and West
Virginia. It consists of a hilly region on the Allegheny Plateau drained by the
Ohio and Beaver rivers. Other waterways include Ambridge Reservoir, Brush
Creek, and Raccoon Creek, which runs through Raccoon Creek State Park.
Beaver County was created in 1800. After founding utopian
communities in nearby Butler county (1805) and in the state
of Indiana (1814), George Rapp and his Pietist sect of
Harmonists (Rappites) created an agricultural and
manufacturing center called Economy (1825–1906). The
thriving community dwindled in the late 19th century. The
American Bridge Company bought the village in 1901 and later
renamed it Ambridge (1906). Old Economy Village features
several restored buildings from the early settlement.
Aliquippa, Beaver county, western Pennsylvania, U.S. It lies along
the Ohio River, just northwest of Pittsburgh. Settled about
1750 as a post for trade with Delaware, Iroquois, and Shawnee
Indians, it was first known as Logstown and later renamed for
"Queen" Aliquippa, probably an Iroquois. After the French and
Indian War (1754-63), the Indian peoples lost their title to the
land, and Logstown was deserted. White settlers came again
in the 1770s, and saw milling and grist milling were early
industries. During the winter of 1793-94, General Anthony
("Mad Anthony") Wayne trained his troops at a site across the
river from the adjacent borough of Woodlawn before moving
into western Ohio to defeat the British-supported Northwest
Indian Confederation at the Battle of Fallen Timbers (August 20, 1794).
Aliquippa was incorporated as a borough in 1892. It grew
rapidly after 1900 with the establishment of steel mills in the
area, and much of the working force was engaged in steel
production until the contraction of the steel industry in the
late 1970s and early '80s. Although some structural steel is
still being produced, most of the steel making operations have
been torn down, leaving the city with restricted employment
opportunities and an aging population. Aliquippa consolidated
in 1928. Pop. (1990) 13,374; (1998 est.) 12,448.
