    A True "American Home Town"

Hello and welcome to Orwigsburg!

A Great Place to Live, Work and Play

The Borough of Orwigsburg is small town America. One of our major strengths as a community is our small-town charm in a fast-paced environment. With only 3106 residents, many families have known each other for generations. The local economy is strong, and local crime is low. Infrastructure is maintained and operational with a proximity of a roads network to PA Route 61, Interstate 78 and Interstate 81. 

Orwigsburg is a great Pennsylvania community. It has a strong and dedicated work force, the residents are caring and supportive of each other, and it seems that even Father Time moves at a more relaxed pace.

"The United States flags at the Orwigsburg Veterans Memorial Hall and on Centre Square have been replaced through the generosity of the Captain Jason B. Jones Foundation. The Orwigsburg Borough gratefully acknowledges the presentation and strongly encourages community residents' support of the foundation's mission."
