I have lived in Mount Union for 14 years and i’m still amazed by the town. The town is located right outside of Huntingdon so it is a lesser known town. Due to this, out population is fairly small which leads to everyone being neighborly. The town is close in stature so it only takes about 20 minutes for anyone to get into town from the smaller town in Mount Union known as Kistler.

Mount Union is an overall great and caring community. I have lived here all my life. Although there needs to some improvement in the low income housing areas. Low income housing has been drastically rising in the area due to the local prisons. In result this leads to more drug and other illegal activity that brings down the view of our town.
I currently live in Mount Union, PA. I have lived here since I was 9 years old. Mount Union has become home to me and my family. I would like to move someday because there aren't any opportunities here. I would like to show my kids the world and I don't think I will accomplish that living in mount union.
