Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, is also known as Pennsylvania Dutch Country and the Garden Spot of America. You might think of people riding in covered wagons instead of cars, or of world-renowned carpentry and craftsmanship. You wouldn’t be wrong, but that’s not all you need to know about Lancaster County.
The famous Amish community makes Lancaster County one of the state’s most popular tourist destinations. They settled in the area for its religious freedom offered by William Penn and for its fertile soil and mild climate.
Despite the name, Pennsylvania Dutch Country isn’t actually Dutch. The word comes from the German word deitsch, which refers to the German and Dutch settlers who inhabited the area. The Pennsylvania Dutch kept the word Dutch, though, to distinguish themselves from all the German settlers who hit the shores during the 19th century.
Lancaster County may be best known for its Amish roots, but today, it’s a modern community, with businesses, a modern airport, amusement parks, and everything else the 21st century has to offer.
