Quality of Life

The borough of Hanover was settled in the mid-1700s as part of York County and is known for its fertile land and productive farming community. It is geographically located 19 miles southwest of York, Pennsylvania and 54 miles northwest of Baltimore, Maryland.

Because of its proximity to Maryland, South Hanover is a popular hometown for commuters and their families. The appeal is the affordable housing prices, reasonable Pennsylvania cost of living and pleasant community lifestyle. With convenient routes leading north, south, east and west, one can chart an easy route to major East Coast cities.

Hanover is a hotbed of activity for business growth and development. Visitors come to enjoy performing arts, outdoor recreation, museums, festivals, farm-fresh flavors and microbreweries. Several major food and snack brands make Hanover their national headquarters. (Patient population: 15,500)
