Lancaster and York, the "Red Rose City" and "White Rose City" respectively, are situated in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch country, where pre-industrial Amish and Mennonite communities thrive alongside a diverse manufacturing-based economy that churns out everything from modern hydro-power water turbines to Harley-Davidson motorcycles to microwave electronics and mine-resistant armored vehicles for the U.S. Marine Corps.
