Top 4 Reasons to Live in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania

  • The Capitol Theatre! Located on South Main Street, just down the road from Mr. J's Barber Shop, the borough's independent theatre has been in operation since 1927. Used as a performance space, a movie theatre and an arts center, the Capitol hosts many national touring performances, live music concerts and community-based events every year. The theatre is home to the Chambersburg Ballet Theatre School, which offers instruction in classical ballet and other disciplines. The 852-seat auditorium is superbly decorated and is now accessible by wheelchair. A ramp provides an access point from the street.
  • Affordable housing! Housing in Chambersburg is more affordable than the median in Pennsylvania. Plenty of borough neighborhoods have homes for sale under the $150,000 mark, including Mill Road in the south and Village Parkway in the north. About two-fifths of the housing stock, including rent to own houses, falls into this category. Despite the affordable home prices, median house price growth has outperformed the statewide average since 2000, making the borough attractive to people who want to buy investment properties.

In fact, the renter-occupied residences outnumber the owner-occupied ones slightly in Chambersburg. Many rented dwellings are located in the center of the borough on East Washington or South Franklin Streets.
