Lewistown received the prestigious All-American City award in 1973 for its rebuilding process following the Tropical Storm Agnes disaster.
Two positives in the years since Agnes was the 2011 purchase of Standard Steel by the Japanese company Sumitomo Industries, who merged with and is now known as Nippon Steel, which effectively saved the jobs of 500 union laborers as well as many others, and the opening of First Quality, an adult incontinence products manufacturing facility that employees approximately 400 people. Geisinger purchased Lewistown Hospital and expanded services including a helicopter pad, the Geisinger LIFE program and a new clinic coming to Reedsville.
Lewistown is home to the Pennsylvania State Fire School, which is the only such facility in the state. Firefighting in Lewistown is very important, as volunteer firefighters have strong allegiance to the multiple independent fire companies in the borough to which they devote their time.
Today, Lewistown is seeing a boom in new businesses by young entrepreneurs including a coffee shop, restaurants, screenprinter and a book store. The construction of a new highway system between Lewistown and State College is underway and will hopefully connect the two communities upon completion.
