Named for the infamous Sicilian volcano, Etna is an independent borough which once housed the world's largest pipe-rolling mill and had a population of more than 7,000 in its single square mile.

Now, Etna seems to grow younger each year as more couples with small children like the mix of housing, reasonable tax rates and outstanding prices. They are drawn by Etna's community activities and especially the river trail, so popular it hosts everything from nature walks to woodsy nuptials. What's the allure here? A strong sense of community and belonging, yes, and a riverfront location that's hard to beat.

The 1 Freeport Road route between Downtown and Tarentum (with service to Waterworks) serves Etna along East Ohio Street. Additionally, the P13 Mt. Royal Flyer provides commuter service to Downtown Pittsburgh, and the 2 Mt. Royal route operates between Ross Park Mall and Downtown, serving Etna in between.
