Tidioute is located in Warren County, Pennsylvania, and had a population of 792 as of the 2000 census. The name is an Iroquoian word meaning "protrusion of land", referring to a sharp bend in the Allegheny River.

From its beginnings, Tidioute was connected to the cutlery industry, when groups of cutlery workers who had emigrated from Sheffield, England migrated from factories in New England to the vicinity of Tidioute and northern Pennsylvania to establish their own concerns.

The town was the original home of the Tidioute Cutlery Company, a knife manufacturer founded in Tidioute in 1897. The company was later dissolved and reformed as the Union Cutlery Company. Union Cutlery relocated to Olean, New York, and the Tidioute factory ceased operations in 1911.PA-Pennsylvania Utility Companies Gas Companies Water Companies Industrial Scene Allegorical Featured Multiple Scenes
