Crawford County is the birthplace of the oil industry and the zipper industry. It was the site of the first primary election and is the keeper of records for eight different counties in the early 1800s.

The 1,038 square miles of Crawford County includes foothills and flatlands. Agriculture and timber are its natural resources. Channellock, a maker of tools, is a major employer, along with Dad's Dog Food, tool and die shops, health care and county government. Crawford County produces agricultural products, tool and die components, dog food, industrial furnaces and Channellock Tools.

Pymatuning Lake was at one time the largest man-made lake; Conneaut Lake is the largest natural lake in Pennsylvania.
