Rices-Landing is a historic borough in Greene County in southwestern Pennsylvania, approximately 60 miles south of Pittsburgh. As of the 2000 census, the population was 443 full-time residents. The small town is located along the western bank of the Monongahela River. There is a legend in the town that in 1775, while traveling to Fort Duquesne, George Washington camped in the area that is now Rices Landing. Rices Landing is situated on a narrow, level river terrace, sloping hillside, and level ridge-top adjacent to the Monongahela River. Pumpkin Run, a tributary of the river, bisects the Rices Landing Historic District which is composed of 63 buildings, five structures and four archaeological sites. The descent from a steep hilltop in Rices Landing, down the winding corridor of Main Street to the narrow river terrace below, offers a scenic view of the meandering river and hills on the opposite shore. A century ago the streets were lined with busy shops, taverns and trading posts and Rices Landing was considered the Gateway to Western Pennsylvania. Today, it's a quiet, charming town with a deep appreciation for its' heritage. Attractions include the Greene River Trail Head, which offers 5.2 miles of paved walking/biking trails along the Monongahela River. Also, Pumpkin Run Park, which is open Memorial Day through Labor Day and features a 67-acre park with deep cliffs, a waterfall, picnic area, boat ramp, old mill race and hiking and biking trails.
