The county is also home to numerous nationally recognized colleges and universities including Franklin & Marshall College, Elizabethtown College, Millersville University, Lancaster Theological Seminary, Pennsylvania Academy of Music, Lancaster Bible University, and the Pennsylvania School of Art & Design.

New and old architecture blend beautifully against the silhouettes of dairy farms, churches, lush golf courses and many historical landmarks.
