Founded in 1749, York County was the fifth county in Pennsylvania and the first to be formed west of the Susquehanna River. Convinced that the area had gained sufficient population, wealth, and the need for a local government, the provincial governor and general assembly separated York from Lancaster County on August 19, 1749.

In 1999, the county honored the 250th Anniversary of this occasion with a year-long celebration. Highlighted by a grand parade held in August, events throughout the year honored the rich history of York County's past and heralded the promise of the county's future.
