Beginning with New York State Legislature’s purchase of 7000 acres of forestland in 1921, Allegany State Park has grown over the years to become the state's largest park. Divided into two sections, the Red House Area occupies the northern half, with the Quaker Area extending southward to the Pennsylvania border. Here, the region is dominated by the Allegheny Highlands Forest Bio Region and a rumpled landscape of Appalachian hills.
