Kane and Black Cherry Forest Subdivision Are Central To Many Amenities

Numerous churches, representing most denominations are located in Kane, and in most neighboring villages. The Lutheran Home at Kane provides both retirement and residential-care living.
Recreational Amenities Abound: The Kane Country Club, with its 18-hole golf course, is less than a ten-minute drive from Black Cherry Forest Subdivision. Several other public and private golf courses are under 30 minutes away.

Twin Lakes and Chapman Dam State Parks, East Branch Reservoir, and other state and national man-made lakes offer camping, fishing, picnicking and swimming just 20 minutes away in differing directions.
Many scenic vistas throughout the Allegheny National Forest (ANF) provide unsurpassed views of this fjord in the mountains! Hunting in the ANF is fantastic, and picnic sites are scattered throughout. The ANF itself is just five to 10 minutes away with access to the North, South and West. Just 15 minutes can bring you to one of the several access points to the North Country Trail, a 2,000-mile long hiking trail stretching from New England to the upper Midwest. Kinzua Bridge State Park is 25 minutes east and features the one-time wonder of the world which was the highest railroad bridge in the world-and, even today, it is the second highest railroad bridge in the U.S. and fourth in the world. Drive or ride the tourist train to the park. (NOTE: In July 2003 a tornado destroyed about half of the bridge. It is still a state park and a wonder to behold.)

Shopping can be easily accomplished in a short time, or make a days outing driving through the scenic countryside. Restaurants abound in and near Kane, and throughout the entire region. There are many unique restaurants, too many in fact to try to name just some of them and overlook others.
Social and Cultural Attractions: Kane is also the home of the General Thomas L. Kane Memorial Chapel. General Kane is revered as saving the Mormons from a war with the United States Government. The chapel, a stop on the national tour for Mormons, displays a statue of the General that is the duplicate of the statue of him in the Utah State Capitol.
