Historically, this area was a Mennonite farming community but has developed into a growing and diverse suburban community with residents employed by pharmaceutical firms, regional banks, manufacturers, food processing, and other service industries. There is a small-town feel with lots of ethnic restaurants, local family businesses, and a revitalized downtown area. We have a strong school district with lots of community sports. There are good community organizations with church partnerships and many generations of families in the area. We are close to Philly but not “in the city”. It is 40 minutes to the Philadelphia International Airport, which allows direct flights to many domestic and international locations. Within a 2-hour drive you can be in hiking or skiing in the mountains, relaxing at a beach in NJ, or exploring the museums and theaters of NYC.
