Natrona - Searching for Dream Street
A woman walks along a street which at one time was the main business district in Natrona, Pa.
Natrona, traditional blue collar town in western Pennsylvania, is bordered by the ATI Brackenridge Plant. About eight blocks away, on the other side of town, stands the former Allegheny Ludlum Natrona melt shop which was shut down in 2010.
Originally known as East Tarentum, Natrona was built as a company town by the Pennsylvania Salt Manufacturing Company in the 1850s.
