About York PA

Located in South Central Pennsylvania approximately 20 miles from the Maryland border, York is the eleventh-largest city in Pennsylvania. With a population of approximately 43,000, York is large enough to offer a wide range of modern amenities, yet small enough for individuals who prefer a slower pace of life. York is also within easy commuting distance of the capital city of Harrisburg, PA and Baltimore, MD.

York played a prominent role in the early development of the United States. York is sometimes referred to as the first capital of the United States, because the Articles of Confederation, the forerunner of the U.S. Constitution, were drafted and adopted by the Second Continental Congress in York during the Revolutionary War. York was also the first northern city to be occupied by the Confederate army during the Civil War.
