Welcome to Crafton!

Crafton, Pennsylvania, a “Tree City USA” community, is one of the best-kept secrets of the Pittsburgh region. With its beautiful, historic Victorian homes, tree-lined streets, and safe neighborhoods, it’s a gem of a borough just 7 miles from downtown Pittsburgh. Crafton’s residents benefit from their close proximity to the Parkway, Interstate 79, the new busway, and the Pittsburgh International Airport. Top this off with a beautiful scenic valley by Chartiers Creek, and you’ll know why generations of families call Crafton home.
