Welcome to Crafton, PA


Crafton, PA, a “Tree City USA” community, is one of the best-kept secrets of Pittsburgh. With its beautiful, historic Victorian homes, tree-lined streets, and safe neighborhoods, its a gem of a borough just 7 miles from downtown Pittsburgh. Crafton’s residents benefit from their close proximity to the Parkway, Interstate 79, the new busway, and the airport. Top this off with a beautiful scenic valley by Chartiers Creek, and you’ll know why generations of families call Crafton “home.”
