Pa General Assembly 171st Legislative District

 

PA House of Representatives District 171 has been represented by Kerry Benninghoff, the PA House of Representatives’ Majority Leader, since 1997. It contains parts of Centre and Mifflin Counties.

 

District 171 includes the central PA towns of Bellefonte, Centre Hall and Pleasant Gap. As of the 2010 census, the population was 67, 294. 

 

This area is home to multiple state parks and forests, including Penn-Roosevelt State Park, Poe Valley State Park, White Mountain Wild Area and Bald Eagle State Forest. The mountainous landscape draws folks in to visit area attractions including Tussey Mountain and Penn’s Cave & Wildlife Park. 

 

Major industries in this region include agriculture and manufacturing. The proximity to University Park means that many people are employed by the Pennsylvania State University, as well.
