Discover York Northern York County

The region encompassing the northern sections of York County draw a heavy influence from the Harrisburg area. Many of the neighborhoods serve as bedroom communities for people who work in Harrisburg or on the West Shore (local lingo for the towns in Cumberland County west of the Susquehanna River). The largest employer in northern York County is actually the Federal Government: the Defense Distribution Center/Defense Distribution Depot Susquehanna is located outside of New Cumberland. The Capital City Airport is also located in Northern York County. Population centers can be found in the towns of Dillsburg, Manchester, and Mount Wolf, and Gifford Pinchot State Park provides recreational opportunities for residents throughout the region.
