Quality of Life

Franklin County, named after Benjamin Franklin, was officially formed in 1784. One of its two main towns, the borough of Chambersburg, lies 13 miles north of Maryland, and is known for its "green, safe environment." In the southern part of Franklin County, the borough of Waynesboro sits just two miles north of the Mason-Dixon Line and is known for its rich industrial history.

Franklin County is in the heart of South-Central Pennsylvania where you'll find mountains, lakes, and a picturesque countryside coupled with theater, music, skiing, hunting, fishing, and much more. We're in the heart of America's fruit orchards, so peaches, apples, and lots of other local produce are available close by. The area features local wineries and breweries, along with a vibrant arts scene at the historic Capitol Theatre and Totem Pole Playhouse. Franklin County merges the best of small-town friendliness with easy access to metropolitan areas. (Patient population: 154,000)
