Who We Are

Welcome to small town hospitality at its finest!

The Northern Lancaster County Chamber of Commerce’s mission is to enhance the business community of Northern Lancaster County and surrounding areas through economic, civil, cultural, social and educational programs. Founded in 1922, the Chamber recently underwent an organizational rebranding, changing its name from The Ephrata Area Chamber of Commerce, to better reflect its 280+ members. In 2018, the Chamber office relocated from a restored train station on Main Street, Ephrata to the Brossman Business Complex just down the street. Today’s Northern Lancaster Chamber represents 280+ members. This vibrant, active membership benefits from services and events that involve business, community and government.

We invite you to explore our website and visit us in person. Feel free to peruse our member list and we ask that you patronize these members for their support.

If we can be of assistance to you, please do not hesitate to contact us.
