The Youghiogheny River

          The Youghiogheny River means “a river that flows in opposing direction”. The reason the river is called this is due the flow which runs south to north. The Youghiogheny River is a tributary of the Monongahela River. It begins in northern West Virginia and flows northeast through Maryland and into Pennsylvania where it joins the Monongahela River near Pittsburgh. During colonial times the river provided an important route through the mountains for settlers as well as military personnel. Coal mining became an important industry along the lower Youghiogheny River during the 19th century.
