Erie is a city that is located in extreme northwestern portion of the US state of Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania is located in the northeastern portion of the continental United States. Erie is located on Lake Erie and is one of the only coastal cities in the state. English is the primary spoken and written language of Erie.
The region where the city sits was first settled by Europeans in 1753 when the French constructed Fort Preque Isle to protect themselves from hostile natives. The British took control of the fort during the French and Indian War and eventually the United States took control of it after the American War for Independence. The city's location on the water meant that it was a vital shipping depot for water and rail shipment companies. Good could be unloaded at Erie and put on a rail to be distributed across the state. Recently the city has seen a decline in shipping due to the reduced usage of the Great Lakes as shipping venues. Commercial fishing has become fairly lucrative in the city though.
Erie has a humid continental climate, which means warm summers and cool winters. Summer temperatures generally stay in the 80's Fahrenheit and winter temperatures can dip below freezing from time to time. Snowfall occurs during the winter months, but rainfall occurs year round, with most of the rain coming in the months of June through August.
There are several venues for the performing arts in Erie. The Erie Philharmonic was created in 1913 and is one of the oldest philharmonic orchestras in the country. The erie Art Museum houses hundreds of displays of local and international art. The Old Customshouse houses the city’s collection of folk and modern art and also hosts several jazz and blues concerts throughout the year. The most popular theater in the downtown area is the Warner Theater which hosts live performances by theatrical and musical groups throughout the year. The Warner Theater is the center of Erie’s downtown Civic Center.
