    The Appalachian Mountains Region



    Since Appalachia lacks definite physiographical or topographical boundaries, there has been some disagreement over what exactly the region encompasses. The most commonly-used modern definition of Appalachia is the one initially defined by the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) in 1965 and expanded over subsequent decades.

      The region defined by the Commission currently includes 420 counties and eight independent cities in 13 states, including all of West Virginia and (14) counties in New York, (52) in Pennsylvania, (32) in Ohio, (3) in Maryland, (54) in Kentucky, (25) counties and (8) cities in Virginia [ In Virginia, all municipalities incorporated as "cities" are legally separate from counties. ], (29) in North Carolina, (52) in Tennessee, (6) in South Carolina, (37) in Georgia, (37) in Alabama, and (24) in Mississippi. When the Commission was established, counties were added based on economic need, however, rather than any cultural parameters.
