Middleburg is a tiny borough in Snyder County, Pennsylvania, with an area of less than one square mile. The founding of the borough dates back to the early 1800’s, when it was originally known as Swinefordstown. The Snyder County Historical Society, dedicated to preserving the heritage and culture of the county, is located in Middleburg. Since 1898, the Society has been providing research assistance to those with an interest in the history of the area.
The Shade Mountain Vineyards and Winery is located in the fertile Susquehanna Valley just outside of Middleburg. Drop by for a free daily tasting of one of several wines produced from over forty varieties of grapes. During the fall harvest, come and watch wine being made in the winery, housed in a converted 19th century barn.
One of Pennsylvania’s most beautiful recreational areas, R.B. Winter State Park, is just a short drive from Middleburg. Halfway Lake, the centerpiece of the park, is filled by spring fed mountain streams and offers opportunities for swimming, boating and fishing. The park includes over 6 miles of hiking trails and modern camp sites and picnic areas. Nearby Penn’s Creek offers some of the best trout fly fishing in the region.
Middleburg is just a short drive from several charming and historic towns of central Pennsylvania, each with many fine restaurants, interesting architecture and specialty retail shops.
