New Wilmington has its roots grounded in the concept of community. It is a place where your neighbors know not just your name, but will happily lend out tools, extend an invitation for a backyard barbecue, and bake blueberry muffins for the new family on the block. It's a warm and welcoming home to residents and visitors alike.

Here are a few of our favorite things that LIVE here:


The arts are alive in New Wilmington! Talent radiates from our residents, students, and business district. From main street shops dedicated to creative expression, to restaurants crafting food to stimulate all of your senses. Catch an all-star play at Wilmington Area High School, a renowned music performance in Orr Auditorium, or a local artist exhibition in the Foster Art Gallery - all just a short walk away.


New Wilmington is a hub of educational movement, intrigue, and discovery. Both educators and learners make their home in New Wilmington: Approximately 1,300 students call New Wilmington home during the academic year at Westminster College; over 400 Westminster faculty and staff bring their expertise and experiences from across the globe to New Wilmington neighborhoods; and almost 1,200 students belong to the Wilmington Area School District.


Taking a stroll through the streets of New Wilmington, you’ll be quick to discover the rich environmental ambiance tightly knit into its every element. From the heart of New Wilmington borough to her countryside, you’ll find health, wellness and cleanliness in the purest form. You’ll see freshly picked vegetables, apple orchards, locally raised meats, and locally produced cheeses. Most compare New Wilmington’s countryside as “storybook-like” - with our Amish friends living in a way that makes Mother Nature smile. The Amish method of living and being is a beautiful expression of relationship with the environment towards purity and sustainability.


And living together implies that we make a constant and conscious effort to support and encourage one another, our businesses, and all of the energy being put forth for the betterment of New Wilmington. There are many opportunities for entertainment, connection, and celebration in our area. Be sure to regularly check the EVENTS page for a complete list of happenings.
