Clarion County is where U.S. President James Buchanan spent his summers at a cottage in Lucinda; and, the Foxburg Country Club and golf course is the oldest continuously used course in the United States.

Clarion County's 601 square miles have valleys carved from the mountains by the Allegheny and Clarion Rivers. Its rural countryside produces coal, timber, oil and gas. Tourism is Clarion County's top industry, followed by Clarion University, the construction of modular housing, glass manufacturing, the hospital, Archway Cookies, furniture manufacturing and other industries.

Clarion County is located within 100 miles of Pittsburgh, Erie, State College, and Youngstown and Cleveland, Ohio. In 1998, Clarion was voted "Pennsylvania's Outstanding Community" by the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry.
