Harrisburg retains the memory of its past dating back to when Captain John Smith discovered the area coming back from the north of Virginia in 1608. Even though he didn’t settle there, it drew interest to the future city. Soon Englishman, John Harris relocated to the area because of its riverside location. The access to the Susquehanna River introduced emerging city to the world as a trading post in 1710. Soon German immigrants converted the city into farmland due to its fertile soil and good irrigation.
Later Harrisburg developed into a major business center with capital credentials in the city since 1812. Before the American Civil War it had served as a major railroad and trade crossing, but afterwards became an important strategic point for the military forces of the state.
Today Harrisburg still has a reputation as a business and governmental center of Pennsylvania. The only event that brought dubious honor to the city was a nuclear accident at the Three Mile Island power station that is regarded as the worst of this kind in the world.
Even though it took huge efforts to recover, Harrisburg improved its image for the vibrant capital with a large number of attractions. The city offers three centuries of history in the State Museum of Pennsylvania and unforgettable displays on the folk art in its galleries.
