Chambersburg, the county seat of Franklin County, is the historic and commercial center of the region characterized by varied small and medium industrial enterprises. It is a rich agricultural and residential area.
It was settled by Benjamin Chambers, who in 1730 with his brother crossed the Susquehanna River and headed southwestward to his final destination at the confluence of the Conococheague Creek and the Falling Spring. This location provided him with the water power necessary for a gristmill and a sawmill which operated there for many years.
