"The Star of the Valley"Founded
The town of Elizabethville was founded in April 1817, and became
incorporated as a Borough of the Commonwealth in 1895. Elizabethville
is located about 26 miles northeast of Harrisburg, at the crossroads
of US Highway Route 209 and Pennsylvania State Route 225. It is
situated in the Lykens Valley, between beautiful scenic mountain
ranges. The approximate population of Elizabethville is 1,500 citizens.
The local government is comprised of a Mayor and seven Council members.
We have a public school system, churches of various denominations,
a volunteer fire company, a public library, banking institutions,
a long-term care facility, and
additional businesses of various kinds.
A community park of 14.5 acres is a peaceful location that
contains several pavilions, three baseball fields, a playground
and a community swiming pool. Additional amenities of the
park area also include a bandstand and restrooms. The
entrance to an abandon rail line is located in the top corner of
our park. The trail borders the park creating a greenway
to Weiser State Forest and continues on for miles. It is
used by hikers, mountain bikers and cross country skiers all of
who begin or end their adventure through our borough park.
Elizabethville is a small, friendly community which strives to
be the "Star of the Valley."
