Welcome to Dauphin County,
home of the magnificent state Capitol Complex, mouth-watering Hershey candy, and a customer-friendly state and county government!
Through both our website and first-hand experience, we are eager to show you why Dauphin County is THE "sweetest place on earth" to live, work, vacation, and raise a family. 
Embracing a Rich History and
Working Toward a Bright Future
Our county is comprised of 40 scenic municipalities that represent an eclectic mix of rural, urban and suburban Americana. As county commissioners, we have devoted ourselves around-the-clock to improving the quality of life for residents and visitors alike and improving services in all departments, from our Aging offices to our Veterans' Affairs Department.
In our first term in office, we have worked to effect dramatic improvements in the county's fiscal outlook, the courts and prison system, the region's economic climate, solid waste management and recycling, the election cycle, human services, our parks and recreation facilities, senior citizens' programs, veterans' services, weatherization and more. We pride ourselves on service.
As true Dauphin County fans, we encourage you to visit the many attractions in Dauphin County. Quaint shops, world-class restaurants, unique cultural attractions, interesting historic landmarks, and so many other natural and manmade treasures are within a short drive of all major cities in the Mid-Atlantic region. 
We hope you will find everything you need to make your visit to this website and this capital county as pleasant and productive as possible.
We serve with passion and strive for excellence. As this website illustrates, we are committed to making your visit to our offices on 2 South Second Street second to none!
