Abbottstown is a quaint community nestled between Rt. 30 and PA- 194 in Adams County, PA filled with history and deep family roots. Abbottstown offers community events for the young and old alike. Hit a few golf balls at the local golf course, take a Saturday afternoon to find a treasure at Ivy Hall Antiques, plan a family picnic or enjoy live music at the community pavilion. In this episode, we visit the Borough Hall, United Hook and Ladder #33 fire department, the historic John Abbott house, and the famous twenty- room historic mansion located in the Abbottstown Square.
Also, located southwest of Abbottstown in Adams County, we visit beautiful Carroll Valley. While in Carroll Valley, you will not be disappointed in a visit to Ski Liberty. In the cold months, winter sports are the rave. In the warmer months, enjoy a day of golf at the 18-hole championship course. If you are unable to make it to the course, The Pro Shop offers state-of-the-art golf simulators. At the new Carroll Valley Community Education Complex, which also houses the municipal offices, residents can enjoy the library and use their Wi-Fi, copier, scanner and fax. Residents can attend community events such as the annual father- daughter dance, the Fourth of July festivities, and movies in the park. And be sure to look for Carroll Valley Mayor Ron Harris. He’ll welcome you with a warm hello.
