Waynesboro

Done

Established around 1800, Waynesboro, Pennsylvania, is halfway between Hagerstown, Maryland and Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. A trip to Waynesboro is a delightful skip back through time into a historic downtown that once claimed more millionaires than any other town east of the Mississippi. Industrialization came and went, taking a toll on its popularity, but in the last 15 years or so, it’s become the undiscovered gem along the Mason-Dixon and home to nearly 11,000 residents. Homes in and around Waynesboro reflect its progress and history in a nice mix of heritage homes, bungalows and cottages, newer residences, and farms.

Greencastle

Greencastle, Pennsylvania, is a small, historic borough in south-central Pennsylvania. Its vibrant downtown has unique shops and restaurants, and hosts an annual Craft Beer & Wine Festival as well as a Seasonal Marketplace twice a year. Every three years, residents hold “Old Home Week,” a municipal reunion, in which residents and former residents celebrate the town’s history and heritage. The tradition dates back to 1902 when it was called the “Old Boys’ Reunion.” Greencastle was settled by Scots-Irish immigrants who thought the area looked so much like home back in Ireland that they stopped and built their lives here. It truly is a place to live, work, and play. If small town life appeals to you, Greencastle should be on your list.
