Does anyone know what the market is like in Gettysburg and surrounding Adams County for the building trades? I'm thinking of moving there and I am a professional contractor, cabinetmaker and finish carpenter.

I visited Hanover last week keeping in touch with relatives and I must agree, Hanover is growing fast. New homes, new business's. To me, that seems to be the area if you want to look for work.

yes, but make sure you live in Adams county. The taxes are way lower!! York County taxes are INSANE.
