York sits as the seat of York County, formed on August 19, 1749 from breaking off from Lancaster County. The city of York was setup in 1741, just to give you a sense of how forward-thinking they were even then. The Continental Congress met here in 1777-78, during which the Articles of Confederation were adopted.
