About Newburg

Set against the scenic Blue Mountain range in Cumberland County, Newburg was originally planned in theyear 1819. Today it has a population of over 300 and remains a peaceful borough rooted in a strong history of rural life. The rural life shines in two of Newburg’s events, Maize Days and Newburg Harvest Festival.

Newburg is also rich in history and still is home to a historic covered bridge, Ramp Bridge, the only remaining covered bridge in Cumberland County in its original location. Ramp Bridge carries a single lane of traffic across the Conodoguinet Creek.

Newburg is located right off of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, making it a convenient location between Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.
