The Coal Country Hangout Youth Center has completed the third monument on the Kittanning Path.

The Kittanning Path is an Indian trail that opened the way westward for settlers from the center of Pennsylvania to Kittanning in the early 18th century. Its 23-mile length across Cambria County now boasts three stone and ceramic monuments, designed and created by students under the direction of Terry Johnson, artist-in-residence with the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art and Artspath/Indiana University of Pennsylvania.

The first monument is on Eckenrode Mills Road between Patton and Carrolltown and was created by students from Cambria Heights High School and art teacher Kady Manifest. The second is on Tower Road near Hastings and was created by Northern Cambria High School students and art teacher Tracy Scalese.

The newest monument is on Route 219 and Emeigh Road and was created by Purchase Line High School students and art teacher Steve Woodrow.

All three monuments were made of stone by masonry students of Jim Vescovi at Admiral Perry Vo-Tech.
