I feel that the Central Pennsylvania area is a wonderful place to live! With our nation's capital only 2 hours away, New York City less than 4 hours away, and the Maryland, Delaware, and New Jersey beaches also less than 4 hours away, we have an excellent location. We have the Army War College, Dickinson College, and Dickinson Law Schoolright here in our community. Carlisle is the county seat for Cumberland County and Harrisburg is the capital of Pennsylvania, therefore, our economy tends to be stable.


If you would like to make this your home, please contact me for a relocation packet. You'll be glad you did! THANK YOU!
