Americana personified.

Strasburg was voted one of the ten most historic and picturesque towns in America. It was developed along the Conestoga Road, the first road in the frontier of Lancaster County.

By 1800, it was second only to Lancaster in wealth and population. Strasburg had many taverns for travelers and immigrants with craftsmen such as blacksmiths, carriage makers, tanners, and shop keepers. Today, you can drive Main Street and admire the colonial log, brick, and stone houses that have been beautifully restored.
