Sitting in the middle of Pennsylvania's heartland is a modest-sized piece of rural America called the Juniata Valley. Words are almost inadequate to describe the rustic charm and beauty of the land. The Juniata River meanders leisurely through one of a series of long verdant valleys fringed on all sides by forested mountain ranges and dotted with many quaint towns and villages. The Juniata Valley comprises two counties - Mifflin and Juniata - with a population of approximately 70,000 and a diversity of large and small businesses. The Valley, while primarily rural in nature and with all the beauty and serenity of nature and country living, is within the densely populated Northeast Corridor and just a few hours from major metropolitan areas. The Valley has major north-south and east-west four-lane transportation corridors, including railroad lines, airports, and bus lines, all offering easy access into and out of the Region. Juniata and Mifflin counties each have county airports and commercial air travel is available at either the University Park Airport in State College or the Harrisburg International Airport, both less than an hour away from the Juniata Valley.
