Jackson Brower: Pennsyltucky - Southern vs Northern areas

Pennsyltucky Cultural Comparisons: Southern Area vs. Northern Areaincludes topics of local politics, sports favorites, big college and professional; most common farm crops, driving habits, friendliness, the way people talk, religious affiliations, the cars the two regions drive, economic trends and oil & gas, famous local rock groups and more.
Writer's Note: This non-scientific study will use two western Appalachian towns as its reference points, mainly because I have lived near both. The first is Columbia, KY, county seat of Adair County, population 19,000. The second is Washington, PA, county seat of Washington County, population 208,000. We'll take into account politics, favorite sports teams, social customs, driving habits, friendliness, speech patterns, local history heroes, top religions, most common cars, economic trends and even local rock music favorites.

By Jackson Brower

We'll look at 12 categories that give written snapshot summaries of life in both areas. It's interesting, because one is very rural and the other is both suburban and rural. One is a small population, and the other is 10 times larger. The towns of Columbia, KY and Washington, PA and their surrounding areas do have some things in common, but there are many differences as well due to geographical location and other factors.
