Welcome to McKees Rocks!
McKees Rocks occupies one square mile along the south bank of the Ohio River just a few miles from downtown Pittsburgh.
The Rocks (as it is commonly known) combines the charm of its history with a 21st-century energy. Founded in 1769 and incorporated in 1829, McKees Rocks has 6,000 diverse residents, from people who have lived here for generations to newcomers just moving in who see the opportunities the Rocks provides.
