Titusville is a city located in Crawford County, Pennsylvania. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 6,146. In 1859, oil was successfully drilled in Titusville, resulting in the birth of the modern oil industry.

The Titusville YMCA was built in 1912 and has been an ever growing part of Titusville’s heritage and an important factor in the community.
On May 20, 1912 A campaign to raise $75,000 dollars for a new YMCA building was launched by Titusville community leaders. Campaign headquarters was located in the Commercial Bank building. The seven-day drive was ended on the fifth day, as $90,000 had been subscribed.
The YMCA is still facilitated in that same building, and is a landmark and cornerstone of the community.
