Overview of Mechanicsburg

Nestled near the northern Appalachian Mountains, Mechanicsburg is one of the of the fastest growing communities in southern Pennsylvania. The city's tagline is "a good place to live," and that is just one of the reasons why so many people are seeking Mechanicsburg apartments for rent. With an industrial past and a keen eye for the future, this charming Midwestern city is a great place to call home. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, more than 9,000 people live in this quiet town. 

Living in Mechanicsburg, PA

Obvious from its name, the city saw its beginnings when a settlement of mechanics who repaired and made wagons made their home in the area in the early 1800s. Over time the city produced its own water line and eventually reached out to the business and industrial world when the railroad came in town. Grain and feed companies, lumber yards and numerous factories were purposefully built near the railroad station so that the goods being produced here would reach the largest cities in the Northeast that were expanding and need these products. Over time, a small community was formed and Mechanicsburg was incorporated in 1828.

Today, Mechanicsburg has a downtown full of history, diversity and pedestrian friendly amenities. With many shops, restaurants and local businesses that cater to a lively mixture of residents, the downtown area remains the heart of the city. The revitalization of the community here gives a nod to its historical past but bright future with no signs of slowing down.

Mechanicsburg Work and Study

According to data from simplyhired.com, the most common occupations in the borough are in sales and office work as well as transportation and material moving. The leading industries include educational, health and social services, retail trade and public administration. Although the city may have an industrial past, the landscape of the workforce is changing with the times.

Many students in the area frequent Messiah College, a Christian-based school that offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in a private setting. There is a variety of fields of study from the liberal arts and applied sciences for students to choose from. Part of the community since 1909, the college has grown into a student body of nearly 3,000 students.
