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 poised for a great economic recovery, and there is a palpable optimism on our streets as we look forward to the next four years under new administration.
