Etters a mostly rural area in York County, is across the Susquehanna River from Harrisburg, the Pennsylvania State Capital.  As early as 1838 a post office was established at Henry Etter's tavern.  Henry Etter became the first post master.  It is believed this is where the post office, located in Goldsboro, got its name.  (Information from Goldsboro post office documents.)

 A beautiful fall weather week! We received the rain needed last week, and now a week to enjoy the sun and mild to warm temperatures. Not likely any 80's anymore, but 70's are great. Next rain looking like late next Monday and into Tuesday. Enjoy!
