Lewistown, Pennsylvania, is a borough in Mifflin County and also the county seat. Lewistown boasts a population of over 8,300. Originally known as “Village of Ohesson,” the name changed in 1795. Lewiston was then named after William “Bill” Lewis, a Quaker and member of the legislature who was responsible for designation of the borough.

Lewistown is home to the Pennsylvania State Fire School, the only facility like this in the state. Asher’s Chocolates is located in Lewistown and provides tours to see how chocolates are made. The Embassy Theatre, McCoy House, Mifflin County Courthouse and the Wollner Building are all listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Every year, Lewistown hosts the “Festival of Ice” the first Thursday, Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving.
