Cresson is an elevated place known for its beauty. Mineral springs add to its attractions. It is above 2,000 feet in elevation. Lumber, coal, and coke yards were industries that had supported the population which numbered 1,470 in 1910. It is most commonly listed as part of the Johnstown Metropolitan Statistical Area, although state and local sources list it as part of the Altoona area as an Altoona suburb due to being much closer to Altoona and as a result, eastern Cambria county, including Cresson, is often more marketed to by Altoona businesses than by Johnstown businesses for services and jobs. The population at the 2000 census was 1,631. The location was named Cresson in 1854, as a memorial to philanthropist Elliott Cresson. Railroads, specifically the Allegheny Portage Railroad, fueled the growth of the area. Many famous Pittsburgh businessmen maintained summer residences in the area.
