Hummelstown is a small incorporated town in Dauphin County, PA. It was originally established as Frederickstown in 1762 by Frederick and Rosina Hummel. They were both German settlers who purchased the land for 200 pounds sterling. After purchasing the land, they divided the parcel into building lots and sold the lots to other German settlers.

When it was founded, Hummelstown was served by the Berks-Dauphin Turnpike. In 1827 the Union Canal was opened and helped to bring commerce in and out of Hummelstown. The Lebanon Valley Railroad came in 1858 and greatly contributed to the rise of commerce in the area.

The Hummelstown Brownstone Company became the leading employer in the area and mined brownstone from the local quarries from 1867 through 1929. Tourism has also played a major part in Hummelstown’s development due to its proximity to Harrisburg and Hershey. Today, Hershey Foods and its many subsidiaries are the major employers for Hummelstown.

Hummelstown is close to several learning institutions and colleges including HACC, Lebanon Valley College, Penn State Harrisburg, YTI Career Institute, Kepler Career Institute, and VoTech. Additionally, Hummelstown has been near to many professional sports teams including the Harrisburg Heat, Hershey Bears, Hershey Wildcats, and the Harrisburg City Islanders.

The borough of Hummelstown has an area of 1.2 square miles and a 2010 population of 4,538. It is a part of the Harrisburg-Carlisle Metropolitan Statistical Area. Swatara Creek, a tributary of the Susquehanna River, creates the border on the north and west of Hummelstown.

Some local annual cultural events are:

  • The Hummelstown Arts Festival - held every September as a fundraiser for graduating seniors from the Lower Dauphin High School
  • Movie Nights held at the Herbert A. Schaffner Memorial Park
  • Taste of Hummelstown - food sampling along Main Street
  • Trick or Treat - the Thursday immediately before Halloween

  • Certainly! Be careful to arrive during store hours and allow for enough time to view all our inventory!
  • Screened topsoil is the best kind of dirt because it's been screened to remove large rocks and other debris.
  • Simply call us at 717-273-7568 to talk to our sales team about the soil blend you need!
  • The garden mix soil is a great choice for growing plants because it has been enhanced with topsoil, which will provide maximum germination and growth. Use this wonderful earth in any area where you want your veggies or flowers to be healthy!
  • Use Mushroom Mulch, and your plants will thank you for it! Mushroom mulching is a great way to improve the quality of soil in all types or containers. It raises its pH level while also providing nutrients that seedlings need when they're just starting out. It can be used as an excellent fertilizer or top dressing for lawns, gardens and flower beds.
  • NOTE: We do not recommend spreading mushroom soil near or against trees because the nutrient-rich mix can attract insects. If you want to use it in an area with shrubs, keep mulch 1-2 feet away from these plant species (or at least till they're happy).
