The cities and townships of Westmoreland County, PA

As the first Pennsylvania county located west of the Allegheny Mountains, Westmoreland County holds a special place in the history of the Keystone State and the nation. Drawn up in 1773 from parts of Bedford, Northumberland, and Lancaster Counties, the county was originally much larger, including the modern counties of Greene, Washington, and Fayette. The first US Census in 1790 put the population of Westmoreland County at 16,000, and it had over 300,000 residents according to the 2010 Census. The most populous area in the county is the municipality of Murrysville at 20,000 residents. Greensburg, PA is the county seat for Westmoreland with a population almost 15,000 in 2010. Though the county includes part of the Pittsburgh metropolitan area, local communities have their own unique histories, ways of life, and attractions.

Westmoreland City, PA

A unincorporated community just northeast of Greensburg, Westmoreland City is a Pittsburgh suburb with its own flavor and charm offering residents an excellent quality of life. The nearby private college, Seton Hill University, is an example of some of the educational opportunities in the area. Westmoreland Mall, just off PA highway 30, provides jobs and places to shop and dine.

Irwin, PA

Located between Westmoreland City and North Huntingdon, this borough had a 2010 population of around four thousand. One of the oldest communities in Westmoreland County, Irwin has many historic cemeteries and sites like the Old Scull House on Brush Hill. That doesn’t mean that this quaint township doesn’t have modern amenities and attractions like Norwin Hills Shopping Center. Visitors can also enjoy great food and unique brews at Laurel Highlands Meadery.

North Huntingdon, PA

Just west of Irwin on Highway 30, Huntingdon Township was founded even before our nation in 1772, and then later divided up into the separate townships of Sewickley, as well as South, East, and North Huntingdon. To celebrate this long history, the town has several historic sites on the national registry like the Fullerton Inn, which operated as a tavern for over a hundred years. Today, the nearby Brick House Tap & Grill serves visitors and residents with modern day brews and eats.

Scottdale, PA

With a 2010 population of just over four thousand, Scottdale was one of the biggest producers of coke (a type of processed coal) and steel in the Keystone state. Like many other Rust Belt towns in the area, the population peaked in the middle of the 20th century. The town still has a lot to offer residents from historic sites like the Scottdale Armory to live performances at the Geyer Performing Arts Center.

Mount Pleasant, PA

While it was more of a steel and coal town during the Industrial Revolution, the township of Mount Pleasant has become a suburb of Pittsburgh that offers a slower pace of life than the big city. The township maintains its history with the Mount Pleasant Historic District, which has a quaint downtown area with restaurants and boutiques.

Guide to Kitchen Countertops in Westmoreland County PA

Whether you’re building a new kitchen or remodeling, choosing kitchen countertops is maybe the hardest decision. Do you go with a luxury stone like granite or a high quality engineered stone product? It’s a lot to decide. Property owners in Upper St. Clair and the greater Pittsburgh area have help from the kitchen countertop experts at Excel Glass and Granite. Before you explore your kitchen counter options at one of our showrooms, check out our comprehensive guide to kitchen countertops. 

Natural Stone Countertops

If you want naturally heat resistant kitchen counters, a stone countertop material is a good choice. The remodeling professionals have access to a wide variety of stone types, including granite, quartzite, marble, limestone, onyx, and slate. Within these natural stone types, there are also a ton of colors and finishes to match any kitchen design. In addition to design versatility, natural stone kitchen countertops offer superior durability. Some drawbacks of stone countertops include the possibility of chipping, the need for a sealant, and a higher cost than other materials.

Engineered Stone Countertops

While many people think natural products are inherently better, a lot of man-made materials offer distinct advantages when used in kitchen countertops. Engineered stone used in kitchen countertops is made up of 93 percent quartz stone and only 7 percent synthetic polymers. This means engineered stone kitchen countertops offer all the beauty of natural stone without the drawbacks. For example, engineered stone counters can be fabricated to any shape, no matter how complicated, including beautiful counter edging designs. Engineered stone countertops also have a nonporous surface and are highly resistant to staining and chipping. 

Let Us Help You Choose

Now that you have a handle on the different kinds of materials available for your new kitchen counters, you still have to choose your style, color, and finish. Those are some big decisions, but you’re not in it alone. The kitchen remodeling experts at Excel Glass and Granite have access to all the different varieties of natural and engineered stone, and they can go over all the pros and cons of different countertops.
