Mechanicsburg derives its name from the settling of mechanics who repaired and made wagons in the early 1800’s. It has continued to be a transportation hub through rail – from the Cumberland Valley Railroad to today’s Norfolk Southern lines – and roadways – Interstates 76, 81, 83 and US Routes 11 & 15. With the confluence of major road systems, these routes make Mechanicsburg easily accessible to all major metropolitan areas of the East Coast. Mechanicsburg is within a 30 minute drive to Harrisburg/Hershey and within a two hour drive of Philadelphia, PA; Baltimore, MD; and Washington, DC.
Mechanicsburg is served by the Cumberland Valley, Mechanicsburg, and West Shore School Districts, as well as several parochial schools. There are also several state, technical and private institutions of postsecondary education within a 30 mile radius.
