I grew up in Huntingdon county (went swimming in the Three Springs pool many times - not sure if it's still there now). Southern Huntingdon County - where you're looking - is actually a little more rural than the northern part that I called my stomping grounds for 18 years. It's a beautiful area (I am admittedly biased), but depending on where you're coming from may seem to be lacking in "services" - no mall within an hour or so, not sure about the nearest Walmart, but farm and feed stores? That's a whole different question! I have fond memories of the feed mill as a kid, and because of the large number of hobby farmers (and "real" farmers"), finding like-minded people shouldn't be an issue. The Huntingdon Co. fair used to have the largest livestock exhibition of any county fair in the state. There is a local paper called the Valley Log that, if you can find it online, would give you an idea of the sense of small town rural community that you could expect to find.
I'm a little envious , home is always awesome...although I love where we live now (west Union county), too!
I'll gladly answer anything I can...my parents still live there, so I hear a lot!
Sounds like wingstone's kind of place.
Or me. Thank goodness my family is the polar opposite of hers.
