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. Fun facts about the area:
- Urban legends says the name Enola was established by original settlers who intentionally picked the backwards spelling of "alone" to discourage others from moving to the town.
- 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.
