Polk is a small country town located south of Erie Pa. Polk offers a very small town and most of the city is country living. People are friendly, down to earth and work hard in our area. Polk is home of one of the oldest placement homes for the mentally handicapped, which is known as Polk Center. Polk Center employs a lot of the community. Polk is a beautiful country town that is small enough that if you are drivng through and blink, you could miss it.
