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.)
