Cambria County

Cambria County was created on March 26, 1804. The county was carved out of Bedford County, Huntingdon County and Somerset County. Cambria did not detach from Somerset County until 1807. The county was named after Cambria Township, formerly part of Somerset County. Cambria is the ancient name for the country of Wales. The county seat, Ebensburg, incorporated on January 15, 1825, was named about 1804 by Rev. Rees Lloyd after his deceased infant son Ebenerer. The boroughs of Beulah and Munster had also been in competition to become the county seat.
