The Penn - York Valley encompasses Athens PA, Sayre PA, South Waverly PA, Waverly NY and surrounding area. This area is blessed with rural beauty and a small town atmosphere where friendliness, security and community play a major role in the lives of local residents, many whose families have been here for generations. While progressive in business and industry, the native and colonial history is etched in the landscape, architecture and even the faces of its people. Perhaps the greatest feature of the Valley is that it offers the best of both worlds. One can maintain the essence of a small hometown, but still be within easy access to larger cultural centers like Elmira, Corning, Ithaca, Binghamton and Watkins Glen. Visitors and residents are only a short drive away from sports arenas, theatres, wineries and much more. Natural beauty, a healthy economic base and many recreational activities make this a great area to raise a family.
