Confluence Borough was incorporated in 1873 — two years after the railroad was completed. Making 2023, our 150th anniversary. As a community, we wanted to celebrate this significant milestone. The Confluence 150 Organizing Committee was formed in November 2022 and we have been working to create a memorable community event.
Join us on Saturday, August 5, 2023 from 11am-9pm for music, food, Art in the Park, and fun.
Our town was named for its location at the junction of the Casselman River and Laurel Hill Creek with the Youghiogheny River. Today, the name is more than a geographic moniker, reflecting the confluence of recreational venues and attractions that bring visitors to our friendly community from far and wide.
Passing through our town is the Great Allegheny Passage bike trail, part of a 335-mile continuous non-motorized corridor from near Pittsburgh to Washington, DC. For dozens of miles, it parallels the Youghiogheny River, noted for some of the best whitewater boating in the Eastern U.S. as well as spectacular scenery. And speaking of boating the 2,840-acre Youghiogheny River Lake just south of town is a power-boater's dream.
