Schaefferstown is a small unincorporated community in southeastern Lebanon County, PA. In 2010 the population was recorded as 941 people. The census area covers 2.7 square miles.

Though located in Lebanon County, Schaefferstown predates Lebanon County by about one hundred years. (Lebanon County was formed out of Lancaster County  in 1813) Schaefferstown is small but rich in history. It is not known exactly when the first settlers arrived in Schaefferstown, but it is though to have been prior to 1725. The original settlement was called the Lebanon Trading Post.

The first settlers were German Jews and were skilled craftsmen. Later as non-Jewish German settlers came to the area the original Jewish German settlers disappeared. 

The town was established by Alexander Scheaffer. Alexander was also responsible for the construction of the water system known located today in what is known as Fountain Park. It was built between the years of 1744 and 1750.

The water system is the oldest gravitational conveyance system by underground pipes in the United States that is still operational today . It provides potable drinking water for the residents of Schaefferstown.

Scheafferstown is serviced by several major roads. RA Route 897, PA Route 501, and PA Route 419 all pass through the town. The two main water sheds are Hammer Creek to the south and Tulpehocken Creek to the north. Hammer Creek is a part of the Conestoga River watershed and flows into the Susquehanna River. Tulpehocken Creek flows into the Schuylkill River and is a part of the Deleware River watershed.

Schaefferstown is served by the Schaefferstown Fire Co. and Schaefferstown EMS. Both organizations are staffed by volunteers and rely on donations from the residents of Schaefferstown to operate. 

According to the Schaefferstown Chamber of Commerce, the economy employes 779, the unemployment rate is 8.3%, and sixty five businesses make up the economy. Three industrial machinery manufacturers, three banks, and three church and religious organizations comprise the largest industries.

  • Simply call us at 717-273-7568 to talk to our sales team about the soil blend you need!
  • Use this earth to grow healthy plants because it has been enriched with topsoil, which will provide maximum germination and growth. This wonderful mix of soils can be used in any area where you want your vegetables or flowers!
  • It's easy to see why Mushroom Mulch is such a popular choice for gardeners and landscapers. By adding this natural fertilizer, you can improve the quality of soil in any container or small space! It'll also help keep weeds at bay because it makes them impossible without much moisture. If your flowers need an extra boost during their growing season then give them some love with our friendly fungi-based top dressing.
  • 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).
