Yes, you read that right. "Eighty Four" is the true name of an unincorporated community in Washington County, Pennsylvania. No one truly knows where the name of the community comes from. Perhaps the name comes from the year the post office was built — 1884. Perhaps the name comes from its location on the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad line — the 84th mile. Either way, this piece of Eighty Four's history is a mystery that delights both residents and visitors.
