With its founding by Henry William Stiegel, Manheim has always enjoyed a strong industrial foundation. Perhaps this together with the Pennsylvania Dutch and German heritage accounts for the sense of strong personal pride presented by its work force.
In 2000 our town sought and obtained status as a Keystone Opportunity Zone. An area on the south east corner of our Borough has Pennsylvania tax incentives for relocating businesses. This applies to state income, real estate and other taxes. Please talk to our Borough officials for details.
In addition, we have obtained status as a Main Street™ community. This status affords opportunity for businesses located in our Main Street / Market Square corridor for façade improvement grants together with the support of a committed volunteer group.
Our school district has routinely achieved national awards for academic excellence and is also known for its acclaimed athletic reputation. Their web site is awesome!
Home also to the world’s largest auto auction, Manheim Auto Auction has visitors passing daily through town on PA Route 72 with a convenient Pennsylvania Turnpike exit very near another regional attraction, the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire. We invite their guests not to just drive by, but stop in and see our historic borough.
Come visit Manheim. Our businesses, bed and breakfasts, schools and citizens welcome you!
