Sandy Lake and Stoneboro boroughs in northeastern Mercer County, about four miles west of Interstate 79 and ten miles from the crossroads of Interstates 79 and 80, provide unique business and industrial development opportunities.

Industries such as Clinch Tite Corporation; Flexospan Steel Buildings, Inc.; Customfold Inc.: and Spang Power Control, provide a stable economic base for the two boroughs. Millwork industries, including John Albert Partridge and Vista Custom Millwork, Inc.,flourish from the area's natural resources and skilled workers.

Advanced educational opportunities exist at Allegheny College, Grove City College, Penn State Shenango Campus, Slippery Rock University, Thiel College, and Westminster College

Sandy Lake, in Stoneboro Borough, is a 150-acre privately owned spring-fed lake that offers water skiing and seasonal rental cottages. Boating and fishing enthusiasts also enjoy Lake Wilhelm, just northeast of the boroughs, and Pymatuning Reservoir, Shenango Lake, and Conneaut Lake, all nearby. An abundance of state game lands exist for hunters.

Sandy Lake and Stoneboro boroughs combine the advantages of small-town living with easy access to the metropolitan areas of Cleveland and Pittsburgh, both about an hour and a half away.
