Elderton Profile


Overview

Elderton is a tiny borough located in the state of Pennsylvania. With a population of 340 people and just one neighborhood, Elderton is the 973rd largest community in Pennsylvania. Elderton has a large stock of pre-World War II architecture, making it one of the older and more historic boroughs in the country.

Occupations and Workforce

Overall, Elderton is a borough of sales and office workers, transportation and shipping workers, and professionals.

Setting & Lifestyle

Elderton’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the nation, making it a very safe place to live.

Elderton is very much a car-oriented borough. This is because the population of Elderton isn't large enough or dense enough to support an extensive public transit system. It has a lot of rural roads, and the distance between houses can be quite large, which together tends to discourage walking and bicycling to work. 99.33% of residents commute to work in their own car (and the drive is typically to a job out of town). People also tend to drive out of town for other services as well, such as shopping, doctors appointments, and more.

As is often the case in a small borough, Elderton doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
