Mercersburg

Mercersburg, PA
Region: Dutch Country Roads

To visit Mercersburg is to step back in time. As the boyhood home of the fifteenth president, James Buchanan, Mercersburg offers rich colonial, Underground Railroad, and Civil War history. Settled by James Black, a Scottish-Irish immigrant, in 1730, the town was originally called Black’s Town. Take the historic walking tour of downtown, enjoy the wonderful early American architecture and listen for the lovely 43-bell carillon of the Mercersburg Academy Chapel.
