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.
