Bradford is a small, rural town located in northwest Pennsylvania, right along the New York border. It is just 78 miles south of Buffalo, New York. Bradford is a historic town, settled in 1823, and growing rapidly during the Pennsylvanian oil boom of the late 19th century. This area is known for its' crude oil, which has superior qualities, free of asphaltic constituents. The widely known Kendall racing oils were produced in the town of Bradford. The town of Bradford's population peaked during the mid-20th century, but as of the 2000 census, it stood at 9,175 residents. The general area around the town, however, brings the population to about 18,000. Attractions in the town include the Bradford Creative and Performing Arts Center, which has a season that runs from September through March. Bradford is also just a short drive to the Allegheny National Forest, which is the only national forest in the state of Pennsylvania. There are many miles of hiking trails in the town, and local Callahan park offers tennis courts, swimming pools, playground equipment and a skate park. Bradford is home to several annual special events, including the Stink fest (a festival celebrating the leek.) Others include Summer Daze, Autumn Daze, an Italian Festival, Zippo Days, the Crook Farm County Fair and a New Year's Eve First Night Celebration.

Bradford Weather & Climate

Western New York experiences four distinct seasons. Average January temperatures are above 22 degrees Fahrenheit. The Buffalo area receives some of the heaviest snowfalls in the nation, and over half of the annual snowfall comes from "lake effect" snows and is localized. Summer temperatures average around 72 degrees Fahrenheit. The average date of the last frost is near the end of April in the Buffalo metro area, but in mid May well inland. Summer is pleasant in this region, with plentiful sunshine, warm temperatures and moderate levels of humidity. Rainfall is adequate, many times coming at night so that it's seldom a problem for outdoor activities. The stabilizing effect of Lake Erie helps inhibit thunderstorms and modifies the extreme heat that approaches from the Ohio Valley.
