Cresson is a very small town that is located up in the mountains of Pennsylvania. It’s is known for its ties to the National Railroad. A majority of the towns population is made up of blue collar workers in the railroad, construction, coal mines, and power plant industries. Cresson sa small mountain community and a lot of heart!

It is a friendly place to live. Neighbors helping neighbors when needed. Just don't like the snow.
It definitely needs improvement, but I don't feel unsafe every time I leave the house. I believe those in law enforcement in the area are pretty responsive and respectful people.
