Miss Natalie (Rose) Boland was born and raised in Cambria County atop Chickaree Mountain. She moved to Texas in 1982 with her family where they sought employment opportunities. She remained there until 1992 when she transferred to Orlando, Florida where she worked at The Good Time Lounge for 16 years and perfected her skills as a bartender; hoping someday she would own her own business. In March of 2019, she moved back to Cambria County and bought Almost Home in June. Her dream of owning a business became a reality.
Where did the name "Almost Home" come from? Natalie said that when she owned her business she would call it Almost Home. She wanted this name because when people would call their loved ones to see where they are, they would say "almost home"...meanwhile they are at the bar.
