Visiting Volant
Nestled in the rolling hills of northwestern Pennsylvania is a "Mayberry" kind of town. It's got everything...fly fishing, Amish, a covered bridge, old grist mill, specialty shops and that warm small town feel. People come from all over the world to visit Volant, but if the residents there hadn't been creative, the town might have closed-up when hard economic times ensued.
