Welcome to the
DuBois Area

Welcome to the DuBois Area

Carved out of the forests on the Allegheny Plateau over 200 years ago, the area that would become DuBois sits high atop the Continental Divide. Incorporated in 1881, DuBois and 13 townships and boroughs surrounding it  form a vibrant community with thriving industry and a nationally-known resort.

The Greater DuBois Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to the growth and prosperity of area businesses and the community as a whole – and on behalf of the entire community, we welcome you. Whether you are a lifelong resident, a new member of the community, or just visiting – we want you to know we are glad you are here and we wish you a warm welcome to the greater DuBois area. This Community Profile is designed to help you learn the community’s many strengths and discover all there is to see, do, and enjoy in the region.

Local residents and visitors enjoy the area’s active lifestyle, with new events, outdoor opportunities, and businesses starting up and expanding all the time. Community functions throughout the year draw good-natured crowds for craft shows, seasonal festivals, wine tastings, art appreciation, and much more. Our communities have a lot to offer!  Most people who live here have strong ties to the area.  Some families have been here for generations, others only a few years, but all are vital pieces of the fabric that make our area so successful. 

Capitalizing on the natural beauty of the area, Treasure Lake Resort offers an active vacation lifestyle in its 8,000+ acre lakeside community. The resort features waterfront and woodland home sites surrounded by amenities to help residents and visitors make the most of their free time. Offerings include relaxing on the sand beaches, water skiing, swimming and much more. The resort also features two PGA-rated golf courses to challenge every skill level.

Our nine exits on Interstate 80, the primary east-west artery across the United States, have helped to build a thriving hospitality and retail base, far beyond that of most communities our size. Easy access to markets has contributed to a diverse range of industry in our region, creating jobs and helping to sustain local economies. The area is also home to an incredible health care system which is constantly expanding and innovating, bringing excellent health care services to this area and the rural communities surrounding us.

A generational-shift in population trends has seen people leaving major cities and seeking out communities like ours where their dollar goes further and they can enjoy the great outdoors. These factors are driving local home sales and helping our community to grow.
