Greensburg is located in southwest Pennsylvania in Westmoreland County. The city has a population of approximately 15,000, with a combined population of 70,000 in the Greensburg-Hempfield area. Greensburg is a major commercial and cultural center in western Pennsylvania. It has also become a popular tourist attraction and ranks seventh in terms of growth among Pennsylvania's cities. It's a very historic city that began at the end of the Revolutionary War. An inn was built along a wagon trail that stretched from Philadelphia west over the Appalachian Mountains to Fort Pitt, which is now the city of Pittsburgh. A small village grew around that inn, which is today the site of Greenburg's business district. Eventually, the tiny village around the inn became the borough of Greensburg, named for American Revolutionary War General, Nathanael Greene. It incorporated in 1799. Greensburg became a coal mining town in the late 19th century, and then after World War II, more residential areas were developed in the town. Today, it's home to the Westmoreland Museum of American Art and a branch campus of the University of Pittsburgh. Greensburg also hosts the Central Westmoreland Farmer's Market on Tuesday afternoons and Saturday mornings in the summertime. Other attractions include the Palace Theater, the Westmoreland Symphony Orchestra, the Summer Sounds Concert Series and the Greensburg Garden and Civic Center.
