  •  Well none of the definitions included it (4+ / 0-)

    and when I search for things like "regions of Pennsylvania" all of the results that come up have it included with Harrisburg, York, Lancaster, etc as Pennsylvania Dutch/Piedmont/whatever. Even Perry County to the northeast was debatable as a lot of those definitions throw it in with the southeast, but since it's pretty legitimately in the mountains I figured I'd include it.

    As for Kentucky yeah that part of the state was debatable, but in the end I just adhered to the Campbell/Ford lines since they for once agreed entirely and everything they included seemed reasonable.

    Really what I would just like to find is a definition of the whole region that isn't from the 1960s, but extensive Googling didn't yield anything more recent.
