DuBois is considered the commercial retail center and is the hub of the micropolitan area of north-central Pennsylvania.

Our communities have roots in lumbering, factories and breweries, with DuBois Brewing and Straub Brewery originating in our area. The region was also involved in the railway transport of coal and timber, as well as briefly being home to the Twyford Motor Car Company. Today, The Pennsylvania Wilds is known as a sportsmans paradise and lakeside destination for vacationing, leisure and a semi-rural quality of life without sacrificing the conveniences of the city.
The communities are progressive in their approachthe former site of DuBois Brewing has become the future site of a women's health center on the lot, one of many services the region offers its residents that increase the quality of life. Historic sites and places of interest are eclectic and vibrant: from Decker's Chapel, the smallest chapel in America to St. Joseph's Monastery, home of the Benedictine Sisters of Elk County or a visit to Punxsutawney Phil, the groundhog said to predict the weather annually on Groundhog Day, our communities are closely-knit yet welcoming and full of unexpected gems. Our area is culturally diverse, building a reputation of excellence in local entertainment and the arts. The Winkler Gallery, Reitz Theater Players, Paul G. Reitz Theater and Cultural Resources Inc. host a number of art exhibits and theatrical productions and performances for residents and visitors to enjoy.
