Franklin County Information


As a part of the first western frontier, Franklin County has a history that dates back to the early 1700’s. Offering copious amounts of cheap land, it would only be a matter of time before the first settlements grew into modern-day cities and towns.  With historic locations like Chambersburg and Waynesboro, Franklin County’s American history is abundant.


Quietly nestled amongst the rolling hills, mountains and valleys that are half-way between Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, this region is ideal for those who enjoy both an urban and rural lifestyle. With a steady commercial growth, as well as a healthy farming industry, Franklin County ranks second in the state’s production of milk, meat, apples and peaches. Whether you’re staying a while or just passing through, Franklin County has something unique to offer everyone.  Check out the list below for more information on historical sites, restaurants and more.
