In September 2021, Somerset County is taking center stage on PCN. As part of our regularly-occurring feature, Pennsylvania’s Neighborhood, we’ll celebrate the people, places and events that make the area known as the “Roof Garden of Pennsylvania” special.
Pennsylvania’s Neighborhood explores the beautiful state of Pennsylvania through a designated block of programming celebrating each neighborhood’s unique history and culture, sports, and politics and policy.
Explore Somerset County’s past and present as PCN celebrates all the area has to offer. From the mineral rich soil that makes Somerset the “land of milk and maple” to the highest point in Pennsylvania, Mount Davis, we take you on a journey that shows the many reasons it is a great place to live and work.
- Glades Pike Winery, Milroy Farms, and Whitehorse Brewing
- Flight 93 Special National Memorial Coverage
- Quecreek Mine Rescue Visitors Center
- Historical Societies and Architecture
- Meyersdale Maple Festival and Somerset County Fair
- Interviews with Local Veterans, Roof Garden Tractor Buddies and Former White House Chef John Moeller
On September 10th and 11th, we’ll wrap up the week in remembrance of the 20th anniversary of the crash of United Airlines Flight 93 in Shanksville. We’ll hear from the first responders, elected officials, and community members who were thrust into the spotlight as a result of terrorist acts. We’ll also look at how the region has memorialized that fateful day, through tours of the Flight 93 National Memorial site, and live coverage of commemorative events.
