Experience Elizabethtown, experience community living at its finest!
If you’ve experienced life in Elizabethtown, you know how special this community is. We’re the heart of Central Pennsylvania, and new businesses and customers are starting to take notice. There are so many reasons why people are coming to Elizabethtown. Join us!
Located in the Heart of Central PA
Location, location, location! The Elizabethtown Area sits conveniently between Lancaster, Harrisburg, and York; it’s why we call our town ‘the heart of central PA.’ We’re also close to highways that connect us to major cities like Philadelphia and Baltimore. In Elizabethtown, you’re close to it all.
Amtrak Train Station
Making Elizabethtown even more accessible is the Amtrak train station around the corner from our downtown area. The rail system brings our neighbors to the east and west even closer. Out of-town customers can arrive to shop and dine out, making Elizabethtown a desirable destination.
The Masonic Villages
Elizabethtown is a town that caters to every phase of life, including retirement living thanks to the Masonic Villages. Masonic Villages is a community within a community. It offers residents a maintenance-free retirement community with first-class amenities, entertainment, and financial security. Because it’s nestled within our downtown area, The Masonic Villages also offers residents excellent dining options, boutique shops, cafes, and access to outdoor trails and activities, many within walking distance of its campus.
Stone Gables Estate
One of our many Elizabethtown area hidden gems is the historic Stone Gables Estate, home to Ironstone Ranch, The Star Barn Village, and St. Michael’s Vineyard. Each is a first-class venue in its own right. Together they bring an all-inclusive events experience to our region that you can’t find anywhere else. We’re especially honored to have Stone Gables Estate as a part of our community because of its mission to donate 100% of net profits to aid abandoned children around the world through Brittany’s Hope, a non-profit foundation serving children and families based here in ETown.
We’re proud to be the home of Elizabethtown College, a private college that sits squarely within downtown Elizabethtown. ETown College is a special institution because of its focus on service. Students are here to learn, grow and prepare for a life focused on contribution to both our community and the world.
A Vibrant Downtown
When you take a walk across downtown Elizabethtown, there’s energy in the air. Together with area businesses, we’re energizing and reinvigorating downtown Elizabethtown and creating a destination where locals and visitors want to be. With each new shop, restaurant, and entertainment venue that joins our community, we’re seeing downtown Elizabethtown grow and thrive.
