About Latrobe

Get To Know Latrobe and Surrounds

The city of Latrobe, quaintly nestled in the foothills of the Laurel Ridge, offers a unique combination of quiet rural-suburban living and navigable distances to Pittsburgh, our closest urban center as well as recreational and cultural amenities.

Of course our fair city, seated in the eastern portion of Westmoreland County, boasts an array of parks, recreation, educational institutions, churches, shopping and dining right in its own backyard. The area is also home to businesses and industry such as Kennametal, Latrobe Specialty Steel Company, Saint-Gobain Ceramics and others. Major driving routes and nearby Arnold Palmer Regional Airport make traveling easy and convenient. The area is also steeped in history, which can be evidenced by a visit to Fort Ligonier and numerous other historic destinations.

In short, Latrobe is everything you want it to be for you – and your family.
