About Pennsylvania


Philadelphia is known for its Revolutionary War-era historical sites like Valley Forge, its large cities like Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, its farming regions, some occupied by the Amish, and a (once)-strong industrial history.

With equally large swaths of cities and towns as fields and mountains, Pennsylvania is a rich and varied state, as well as a worthy travel destination. Pennsylvania is bordered by the states of New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Maryland, West Virginia, and Ohio.

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is a geographically diverse state with a Great Lake on one shore and a major seaport on the other. The climate of Pennsylvania is pleasant, with cold, often snowy winters, mild to hot, humid summers, and gorgeous green springtimes, and most notably, spectacular displays of colorful autumn foliage.

A study released in the summer of 2003 by Penn State University shows that Pennsylvania's horse industry is massive and thriving, contributing big bucks to the state economy. And it's preserving more than a million acres of state farmland.

$8.2 billion or 18 percent of agribusiness sales, the state's largest industry, can be attributed to horses. The $8.2 billion refers to investments including land, buildings, machinery, etc., and does not include the value of the horses themselves, an additional $1.3 billion.

The state is home to more than 220,000 horses.

The study shows the total value of Pennsylvania's horses more than doubled since 1990, from $620 million to $1.3 billion. The industry's total investment in land, horses, buildings, trucks, trailers, tack and other assets, is a whopping $9.5 billion.

Not included in the study was money spent by residents of other states and countries who come to Pennsylvania to ride or compete. The Pennsylvania National Horse Show estimates that out of state competitors spend $40 million each year on hotels, meals, shopping, and more during that show alone.

Among the study's most interesting findings is that the amount of land devoted to horses totals 1,140,000 acres, valued at $4.8 billion.

Horse Farm with Spectacular Views

York, York County, Pennsylvania

People are always looking for that "million dollar" property with a view, are now home! As you pull off Mt. Pisgah Rd, the mature Black Locust tree lined driveway leads you to a perfectly laid out, turn key horse breeding operation, veterinarian clinic and/or an incredible "gentleman's" farm. This property is designed to raise grand equine athletes. The farm began in 1990, and over a 25-year period, some of the greatest Standardbreds in history were raised; at one point, 7 Hambletonian Oaks & 9 Breeders Crown winners stood on this hallowed ground. The soil is perfect for raising livestock because it drains incredibly well, providing an improved footing, yet it is rich in nutrients necessary to grow and develop young bones. The 1st structure is a manufactured home; a 3 bedroom with an office. The 2nd structure is the 24' x 60' barn which was the first barn built on the farm. The 3rd building was constructed in 1992 and designed as a bank barn, naturally ventilated with 14 oversized 12 x 14 stalls. This Hemlock structure includes a 24 x 30 area that can be accessed by a laboratory and/or a 16' entrance. This area is now fitted as a breeding shed and still has a receiver for a stallion mount; making it perfect for a veterinarian clinic and/or equine rehabilitation center. The hay loft is situated over the center aisle on both ends capable of holding 35+ tons of hay and/or straw; also featuring skylight panels for natural light. The barn is also fitted with a wash stall and an office designed to keep the laboratory segregated from excessive foot traffic of the staff; the barn office is the access point to an office area above. The upstairs office area was constructed to incorporate 3 offices, a reception area and waiting room, a full bathroom and 2 ancillary rooms that open into a large 16" x 48" room; behind that are two 12 x 14 rooms and a large conference room that is 12 x 24 overlooking the valley. The office is fitted with solid cherry flooring and wainscoting in the primary office and conference room. The barn as a whole is designed as a multi-function building whereas if the new owner is not interested in a livestock and/or veterinarian facility, it could easily be repurposed as a wedding venue as the farm sits at the second highest point in York County south of Rt 30. The primary home is about 3,100 sq ft of living space with 5 full baths and additional finished basement for a combined 4,400 sq ft. The concrete oversized wraparound porch opens itself to beautiful western sunsets and when entering the front door off the porch, the home opens to an impressive foyer. On the 1st floor there are 14 oversized low to the floor windows taking advantage of the natural wind corridor. The wood floors were harvested from oak trees taken off the land and milled in 1994. The solid cherry kitchen continues the colonial theme with all updated stainless appliances, and includes a breakfast nook; the family room has a wood burning fireplace that is fitted for propane gas. The 1st floor also has a formal dining room and a guest bedroom. The 2nd floor offers an owner's suite with a vaulted ceiling, a bumped out sitting area, and a full bathroom and walk in closet. There are also 2 bedrooms separated by a Jack and Jill configuration as well as another bedroom facing the front of the home with its separate full bathroom. The basement offers a workout room and is serviced by a steel covered outside access door from this room; this area also offers a 2nd family room/man cave with a wood burning fireplace that is fitted for propane gas. There is also and additional bedroom adjacent to a full bath. There is also a larger room with a tile floor that is currently a small band studio and/or practice area that offers an overabundance of electrical receptacles to handle added electrical equipment. All in all, even though this home is only 20 years old, the historical features built into it makes it extremely unique and one of a kind.
