We are nestled amid the rolling hills and farmland northern Lancaster County.  We are an interesting mix of old and new...culturally, archtecturally, economically.  Vehicles share our wide Main Street with clopping hooves of horse-drawn buggies of the area's Mennonite and Amish neighbors.


Over 100 businesses serve the residents who live in and around Downtown Ephrata.  Housed in historic buildings, dating back generations, line an early 20th-century streetscape of paved sidewalks, lamp posts, and furling banners. Street benches await the weary, planters refresh the eyes, and colorful awnings provide respite from the sun.

We are located in Pennsylvania's Amish country, within 90 minutes of Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Hershey, and 20 minutes from Lancaster city.  Downtown Ephrata is accessible to major cities, shopping and cultural centers, airports, and rail stations, yet amazingly unfazed by the urban presence.  We offer a truly "vintage" experience.

Come...get to know us....Downtown Ephrata.
