Overview

The Heritage Center & Gift Shop is a great place to explore the history and culture of our area. You'll also find local gifts and souvenirs from Chambersburg. We focus on five areas of historical merit in Chambersburg and Franklin County to highlight our distinctive history. There is also a children's activity room and walking tours available by scheduling in advance. The gift shop includes books about local history, Chambersburg peach souvenirs, postcards, T-shirts & clothing, movies, mugs and much more. Local 11/30 items commemorating Chambersburg's location at the intersection of Route 11 and Route 30 are also available. It's a great place to shop for unique birthday, holiday, graduation or other presents for both residents and out-of-towners.

Sisters and I visiting area and stopped in here. I was a little disappointed that they did not have more physical displays. It was mostly pictures.

We stopped in and had a great conversation with the local guide. He gave us info on local sites and eaterys. They have some good books and my hubby picked up one with civil war history.

Not sure if we were there on the wrong day or what, but the staff was just downright rude. Our questions were all answered with a curt yes or no. It certainly wasn't a friendly welcome and didn't encourage me to return.More

There is a great display of history of the area at the Heritage Center. Old pictures, commentaries and even a bank vault. Good for older kids

Found great local souvenirs and locally made items - awesome smelling soaps and scrubs, as well as yummy scented candles. They have a nice selection of clothing representing Chambersburg (11/30) as well. Will definitely keep this place high on my list when shopping for gifts.
