New Freedom, PA
New Freedom Borough is located in the southern portion of York County, Pennsylvania. The borough borders the Mason-Dixon line and was incorporated in 1873. Originally named "Freedom" for the Free family, there was another town already in existence with that name, so New Freedom was chosen as the official name.
The Northern Central Railway was a primary factor for early growth of the town. The rail service established a vital means of commerce and transportation until Hurricane Agnes in 1972 destroyed much of the rail line and bridges in York County.
Located 30 miles north of Baltimore, Maryland and 38 miles south of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania the town is changing from an area of commerce and minor industry to a commuter community.
