About Montrose, PA - Happy to be your hometown Heating & Air Conditioning Contractor!

It’s hard to know just what you are coming into when you find yourself in Montrose.  This small Pennsylvania town is beautiful, small, and historic.  The weather changes with the seasons providing rotations in weather with passing months.  It is a lovely place to raise a family, or to retire.  It is also a popular choice for those who love hunting and fishing.  In addition, the town has a long and interesting history that you probably know nothing about.

Montrose was built in 1812, and the first courthouse was constructed the following year. Almost immediately, the first families built large houses and churches as well as a green and a commons. The traditional older industries included creameries and the manufacturing plants and factories of a wide array of products.  At the turn of the 19th century, exactly 1,827 people lived in the town and the population was 1,617 at the time 2010 census. So, it is fair to say that it is small. But, small is not a bad thing.  The town is lovely, historic, naturally beautiful and filled with the nicest people that you will ever meet.  Locals love to be outdoors in the beautiful summer weather and are often seen out and about in the snow, too.  Everyone is accustomed to the changing weather patterns of this part of Pennsylvania.  But, not everyone knows the local legends about some of the homes in this tiny town.

There are stories that name Montrose as having played an important part in the Northern Trail of the Underground Railroad, and that several run-away slaves were housed temporarily in town. Then, they remained in town after the war.  This is how some explain the insurgence of Black people into the area after the way. But, according to historians, it is much more likely that African-American populations were attracted to jobs in what was then a newly expanding coal industry in the region. There is little evidence to support the Underground Railroad folklore but many locals still hold steadfast to the belief that Montrose citizens played a large role in saving runaway slaves during the Civil War.

To this day, industrialized business is the largest contributor to the local revenue. The area of Montrose has a large number of quarry sites. Blue stone, a type of rock that is indigenous to the region is mined.  In addition the area is probably most famous for Marcellus shale drilling, putting Montrose in the center of the natural gas industry. In this way, the town is an economically sound choice for prospective homeowners.  Work is readily available within a short drive. The area has seen a resurgence in a variety of ways but still remains quiet and peaceful as ever.
