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.
