New Cumberland PA Overview

When you think of New Cumberland, you might associate it with the Army Depot. But, our southernmost town on the banks of the West Shore was originally a ferry site for early English, Irish, Scottish and German settlers crossing the Yellow Breeches Creek.

Today, a historic iron bridge welcomes visitors to this friendly community. The "Olde Towne Association" is restoring New Cumberland's neighborhoods with brick sidewalks and period decorative details to attract shoppers, tourists, prospective residents and businesses.

Spend a day in town starting with breakfast with the locals at TJ Homestyle then pop in and out of shops, galleries and restaurants. Experience a European twist with an Irish Tea at Oxford Hall Celtic Shop. For even more fun dining establishments and places to shop, view our Downtown New Cumberland trip idea
