Welcome to the Borough of Greencastle and the Borough Web Site. Founded on March 25, 1805, Greencastle Borough is one of Pennsylvania’s most historic communities. Located in picturesque south-central Pennsylvania, Greencastle’s history is rich in tradition, the community beautiful and the people friendly and welcoming. Close proximity to a number of large cities - 84 miles to Washington, 70 miles to Baltimore, D.C., 63 miles to Harrisburg, 158 miles to Pittsburgh and 152 miles to Philadelphia- makes Greencastle an ideal location for easy access to regional historic sites, multi-cultural events, and abundant shopping and dining.
Civic pride appears throughout our community. Community First Fridays from May to October, the Triennial Greencastle-Antrim Old Home Week, next scheduled for August 2016, and a significant number of other community events make Greencastle a wonderful place to live and visit.
I hope you find this web site useful and I encourage you to contact us if you have questions or suggestions for improvement.
If you are here for a visit we thank you for coming and hope you will visit often. If you are a resident who has "put down roots", we thank you for making Greencastle the beautiful town that we call home.
