Harrisburg is a town with a rich history that spans more than 200 years. As the capital of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, we attract thousands of people to our city to live, work and play. Our city is in the midst a great economic recovery.  There is a palpable optimism on our streets as new businesses open, new residents move in and Harrisburg regains its stature as one of the premiere capitals of our nation.

Our city is on the move. Our future will be even greater than our past!
