Millersburg, PA

Millersburg is a borough in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania.  The population was 2,562 at the 2000 census.  It is part of the Harrisburg-Carlisle Metropolitan Statistical Area.

Nestled among Pennsylvania's beautiful mountains lies the historic town of Millersburg - home of a unique transportation service whose very beginnings are lost in antiquity. 

Here, across the mile wide Susquehanna River, one can ride the last ferry on the river and experience a part of transportation history.

In addition, it was here Alan learned to picnic. To sit there along the majestic Susquehanna River and watch the ferry in the distance, taking people across the waterway was a memorable experience.

During the spring of 1790, Daniel Miller and his brother, John were traveling north along the Susquehanna River. When they arrived at the north side of Berry's Mountain, tradition has it, Daniel was so taken with the beauty of the area where the Wiconisco Creek joined with the Susquehanna River that he resolved to purchase the land at that location. On June 2, 1790, Daniel received a deed for 979-1/4 acres at the mouth of the Wiconisco Creek from William Von Phul of Philadelphia, the then owner of the land upon which Millersburg is now situated.

In 1807, Daniel Miller's dream of a town on the banks of the Susquehanna became a reality. During that year, he had the land surveyed and laid out into lots, reserving land for churches, the town square and a riverside park.
