Sitting at the intersection of the Schuylkill Canal, the Reading Railroad, and Centre Turnpike, placed Hamburg, Pennsylvania at the very center of early industry in Pennsylvania’s Americana Region. At one time, the towns many mills and early factories provided more jobs per capita than any other town of its size in America. Stores and other businesses drew customers from the countryside for miles around. Today, Hamburg is a 200 year walk through history, and its Heritage Town and Tour status increases preservation every day. Catch the Schuylkill River Greenway Trail here, visit the Reading Railroad Heritage Museum, or schedule your visit around the annual Taste of Hamburg-er Fest.
