Sharon, Pennsylvania

Situated on the Pennsylvania-Ohio line in the southwest region of Mercer County, 75 miles northwest of Pittsburgh, is the city of Sharon, Pennsylvania. Sharon was settled in 1795, incorporated as a borough on October 6, 1841, and incorporated as a city on December 17, 1918. The city has a population of more than 16,000 people and is part of the Youngstown–Warren–Boardman, OH-PA Metropolitan Statistical Area.

Initially a center of coal mining, Sharon's economy eventually evolved into steelmaking and other heavy industry following the Industrial Revolution. The city was once home to rolling mills, boiler and machine shops, flour mills, ordnance works, and manufactories of explosives, nails, horse collars, spokes, chains, stoves, and lumber products. Following levels of deindustrialization during the 1970s and 1980s, the city's economy diversified and is now based primarily on light industry, education, health care, and social services. Sharon Regional Health System is Mercer County's largest employer and offers advanced medical care to the surrounding communities. Other notable businesses currently based in Sharon include Winner Steel, John Maneely Company-Wheatland Tube Division, Sharon Tube, and Eastern Software, and Wintronics.
