Many of the County Links on the left will keep you specifically in Carlisle and Cumberland County, part of the PA Dutch area of PA. We add new listings and links on a regular basis.

History is everywhere in the colonial town of Carlisle. The quaint tree-lined streets and grey stone colonial buildings give a glimpse into the past. A past which includes Jim Thorpe and the Carlisle Indian School, Molly Pitcher, Revolutionary and Civil War sites, and much more.

The oldest towns in the county are Shippensburg and Carlisle, each with its unique history. Shippensburg is home to Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania. Carlisle is home to Dickinson College, established in 1773, and the Penn State Dickinson School of Law. The United States Army War College is a United States Army school also located in Carlisle on the campus of the historic Carlisle Barracks, a military post dating back to the 1770s.

During the Gettysburg campaign of the American Civil War in the summer of 1863, Confederate troops marched through the Cumberland Valley, briefly occupying much of Cumberland County.

Steeped in natural and historical features, the 696-acre Pine Grove Furnace State Park is at the northern tip of the Blue Ridge Mountains, in an area known as South Mountain. Visitors enjoy many recreational opportunities, including two mountain lakes, Laurel Lake and Fuller Lake, hiking the Appalachian Trail, biking the rail trail, visiting the Appalachian Trail Museum and imagining when the park was a charcoal-fired iron furnace community. The park is surrounded by Michaux State Forest, which provides opportunities for exploring extensive public lands around South Mountain.

For antique lovers, the Carlisle area has 50 antique shops and hosts two major antique shows each year.
Among car enthusiasts, Carlisle is a mecca for collector events, such as the collector-car flea markets in the spring, summer and fall, the All-Ford Nationals in June and a Corvette show in August.
