- Handbook Community
Edinboro is a community of about 7,000 residents situated in a picturesque rural setting that becomes a lake resort during the summer months. The area offers many year-round recreational and cultural opportunities.
Located 15 miles south of the City of Erie and almost equal distance between (and with easy Interstate highway access to) the major cultural and metropolitan areas of Cleveland, Pittsburgh and Buffalo, the Borough of Edinboro was founded in the late 1790s by Scottish pioneers who traveled across the mountains from Lycoming County, Pennsylvania, by wagon and horseback to settle in the heavily forested and lush farmlands of northwestern Pennsylvania. They named their new town after their beloved Edinburgh, Scotland.
