The Lebanon Valley has the same rich farmland beauty as its neighbors in the Susquehanna River Valley, such as Lancaster and Adams Counties, with rolling hills and fertile soils. The county also contains deposits of iron ore and good building stone.


Average rainfall in the Lebanon Valley is 31 inches, and the same average snowfall. Average daytime temperature in January is 34° F and 85° F in July.


Located within 30 miles of not only the state capitol in Harrisburg, but also the well-known Pennsylvania cities of Lancaster and Reading, the Lebanon Valley is ideal because of its blend of big-city accessibility and small-town beauty. Philadelphia and Allentown are both within an hour and a half drive, Baltimore and Washington, DC are within two hours, and even New York City is less than a three hour drive.
