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.
