The Real Finch's Crossing
Finch's Crossing is based on the real town of Scottdale, Pennsylvania, where I spent summers as a girl. The community of about 5,000 residents is located an hour from Pittsburgh, in the beautiful Laurel Highlands of western Pennsylvania. Scottdale is comprised of a vibrant downtown commercial district on Pittsburgh Street, and neat picturesque residential neighborhoods. It is quintessential small town Americana with a very active citizenry, a lot of small-town spirit and many year-round organized events.
