Its Local History

Did you know York is considered the first capital of the United States? In the 1770s, the Continental Congress moved the nation's government from Philadelphia to Lancaster (due to advancing British troops), and then from Lancaster to York (since Lancaster was home to Pennsylvania's state government). The Articles of Confederation were drafted in York just a few years later.
