Barnabas Hughes laid out a town and named it Elizabethtown in honor

of his wife. The town, one of the earliest communities settled in

Lancaster County, had a central square and "diamond" pattern common

to many of the newly founded Pennsylvania towns. Stakes in the

ground identified boundaries of the lots and of the streets and alleys in

town. Barnabas Hughes gave them the names they still have today -

Market Street, High Street, Rose Alley, Cherry Alley, and Peach Alley.

Situated along a trail, which became the Lancaster-Harrisburg Turnpike,

the trading and tavern business flourished and the town grew rapidly.

Elizabethtown was incorporated  as a borough on April, 1827. Situated in scenic northwestern Lancaster County, the town is 10 miles south of Hershey and 20 miles from Harrisburg, Lancaster and York. The borough of Elizabethtown provides a variety of municipal services and activities that contribute to the exceptional quality of life in Elizabethtown.
