Enola's roots hail back to the expansion of railroad transportation, and rail lines still run through the heart of town. Today, it is still a postcard of small-town Pennsylvania, complete with a Shady Lane and an historic one-room schoolhouse.
- An urban legend about the name Enola is that the original settlers intentionally picked the backwards spelling of "alone" to discourage others from moving into town.
- Named after the four-year-old daughter of a local farmer, Wesley Miller, who sold land to the Pennsylvania Railroad in the 1800's.
- The Enola Rail Yard, located along the western shore of the Susquehanna River, has been in use since 1905 and was the world's largest freight yard through 1956.
