Located in the majestic Cumberland Valley, New Cumberland boasts an incredible view of where the mighty Susquehanna and vibrant Yellow Breeches Creek meet. It's a place steeped in history - Native Americans once called it Shawneetown; Chartier's Landing was popular among traders during colonial times and up through to Haldeman Town before becoming what we know as today: beautiful, inviting New Cumberland Borough.
New Cumberland Borough is a great place to call home! Whether you're looking for entertainment or relaxation, there's something here for everyone. It features parks and playgrounds as well as diverse neighborhoods and shopping options. You can explore the area on foot with its walkable downtown full of unique restaurants, services & shops – plus plenty of art galleries showcasing creative talent from near & far. On top of that, we have easy access to our river, creek & more - giving the perfect excuse (or inspiration) to re-discover nature's beauty around each corner.
