Solanco Real Estate
The Solanco School District is nestled in the southern portion of Lancaster County amidst the rolling hills of south-central Pennsylvania. The name Solanco is an abbreviated form of Southern Lancaster County, the territory covered by the school district. The component municipalities of the school district are Bart, Colerain, Drumore, East Drumore, Eden, Fulton, Little Britain and Providence Townships, as well as Quarryville Borough.
The district consists of approximately 186 square miles, comprising an area from about seven miles south of the city of Lancaster to the Maryland state line (north to south). Fulton Township is the only municipality in the county to touch the Maryland border. The district also extends from the Susquehanna River to the Chester County line (west to east). This makes for an intricate busing system between the homes of the students and the seven schools in the district. Of the 22 school districts served by the Lancaster-Lebanon Intermediate Unit 13, Solanco is the largest district in terms of land, representing nearly 20 percent of the total county in landmass.
There are numerous parks with recreational opportunities including the Drumore Township Park and the Susquehannock State Park, which is situated on a wooded plateau overlooking the Susquehanna River. The Southern End Community Association is headquartered in Quarryville. It provides quality community services, recreation, and facilities to the residents of southern Lancaster County.
