York Township offices are located at 190 Oak Road, Dallastown, PA 17313.
While early settlers in the area that would become York Township were from diverse ethnic backgrounds (English, German, Scotch, Irish) most shared a common background — farming. York Township was established in 1753, the City of York having been laid out a dozen years earlier. At various times during the latter part of the 19th century, the more densely populated areas of the township incorporated into boroughs: Dallastown (1867), Red Lion (1880) and Yoe (1893). After World War II the township began to transition from a predominantly rural township resulting in its present suburban character due to the many large lot, residential subdivisions that were built.
