A distinctive residential area with 66 single family homes/lots (Rosenmiller Farm) and 46 condominiums (Rosenmiller Woods)
In 1753, Ludwig Rosenmüller settled on a farm in northern Adams County. By 1832, his grandson, Lewis, was buying parcels of land located on the Baltimore Pike in Spring Garden and York Townships. Eventually, 230 acres of prime York County land were accumulated. For more than 150 years, the Rosenmiller Family, through tenant farmers, maintained a dairy and truck farm and, eventually, grain and soybeans became their crops of choice.
In the 1960s, Oak Hill was developed into a fine residential community on a portion of the farm west of Grantley Road. In the 1980’s and 1990’s a planned residential community was developed on much of the farm property with homes, condominiums and recreational amenities.
The core of the development will be preserved for all time, including the Rosenmiller Farm buildings and surrounding pastures. An additional 20 acres of open space is owned by the homeowners and condominium owners, under strict, permanent conservation easements.
The Rosenmiller community is unique in Central Pennsylvania – a planned community just five minutes from downtown York and suburban shopping centers, and less than five minutes from the WellSpan York Hospital and next door to Apple Hill Medical Center. The land lies within two fine School Districts, York Suburban and Dallastown, yet preserves its agricultural atmosphere and abundant open space.
