Ambridge PA

Sitting along the Ohio river 15 miles from the city of Pittsburgh PA, the borough of Ambridge was named for American Bridge Company (a division of US Steel), who fabricated the iconic Unisphere for the 1964-65 New York World's Fair. Ambridge is also home to Old Economy Village, a historic landmark.
