Puzzletown, Pennsylvania

Puzzletown, Pennsylvania (4022'37"N, 7829'24"W) is a small region, formerly known as Marionsville or Poplar Run, in Blair County, Pennsylvania. It is found at the bottom of a valley which leads up to Blue Knob, the second-highest mountain in the state and part of the Allegheny Front, the eastern edge of the Appalachian Plateau. It is a rural area with a population of three to five hundred at its most liberal definition and less than one hundred at its most restrictive.

Puzzletown is considered by most to be the Puzzletown Road, a road leading to the southwest from Newry, Pennsylvania, and all of the short side streets and housing developments on it; others extend this for several miles after the road's name becomes the Blue Knob Road and others limit it to only the intersection of Puzzletown Road and Poplar Run Road and the few nearby side streets.

Puzzletown has had no city government of its own since the 1800s, when it was incorporated as Poplar Run; it currently is under the power of Duncansville, which is at considerable distance from Puzzletown and has historically intervened little in the area.
