East Hempfield is where I grew up. It is a friendly, safe and fun place to live. I have friends here that I know I will have forever. This is a place I would be proud to live in when I'm older. I would want to raise my children here!
This area is full of nature and farmland which I find calming and beautiful. Downtown is always full of culture and the arts. The streets are filled with local musicians, art vendors, and crafts vendors. I would live here all over again in a heartbeat. Fresh coffee, fresh amish food, and good people keep me coming back. I feel the area has a good future. There are so many smart, creative, and motivated people who want what is best for the community. Lancaster County is the place to be.
