Where in Pennsylvania is Cameron County? (County seat is Emporium)


Cameron County was created on March 29, 1860, from parts of Clinton, McKean, Elk and Potter Counties and named for U.S. Senator Simon Cameron. Emporium, the county seat, was incorporated as a borough on October 13, 1864. Its name is Latin for market or trade center. In Cameron County you can view majestic elk, the white-tailed deer, black bear, all types of small wild animals and much more.

When searching genealogy records, remember Cameron County was created in 1860 with borders changing many times with its neighboring counties: Elk; , Clearfield; Potter; Clinton; McKean Counties (check these sites and records also). The Elk and related wildlife are an important make-up of this region both historically and today in both Cameron and Elk county.
