Located in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, you have the lovely, quaint borough of Bradford Woods, which is a member of the greater Pittsburgh Metro Area. With only two borders, there is Pine Township to its east and Marshall Township to its north, south, and west. Incorporated on May 3, 1915, from a portion of Marshall Township, Bradford Woods was initially settled as a summer vacation getaway. During those days, the Harmony Line, which was an interurban railway, used to run through the area of modern-day Bradford Woods. Now Forest Road has taken the place of the railroad, providing residents with a direct route to Pittsburgh. In 1974, a home rule government was established, meaning it has the power of self-governance equal to the power of the state of Pennsylvania.
