York, PA is a great city in southern part of Pennsylvania that has many old buildings and architectural wonders for tourists to explore. Scottish and German immigrants founded York in 1741 and by the 20th century it was considered a ‘factory capital’ when 13 large scale factories opened and transformed the face of the city. Some important things were made on the assembly lines here including microchips and some classic Harley Davidson motorcycles.
York is an amazing city to spend a holiday in because Pennsylvania has very beautiful nature and a number of museums, parks, golf courses, landmarks, and historical buildings to explore.

The Agricultural and Industrial Museum of York is a beautiful building and it tells the story of York but from a different perspective; that of the economic success of the city.
