Mount Gretna Profile


Overview

Mount Gretna is a tiny borough located in the state of Pennsylvania. With a population of 207 people and just one neighborhood, Mount Gretna is the 1021st largest community in Pennsylvania. Mount Gretna has an unusually large stock of pre-World War II architecture, making it one of the older and more historic boroughs.

Occupations and Workforce

Mount Gretna is a decidedly white-collar borough, with fully 88.89% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Mount Gretna is a borough of professionals, managers, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Mount Gretna who work in management occupations (14.44%), office and administrative support (13.33%), and business and financial occupations (12.22%).

Of important note, Mount Gretna is also a borough of artists. Mount Gretna has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Mount Gretna’s character.

Also of interest is that Mount Gretna has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.

Setting & Lifestyle

Another notable thing is that Mount Gretna is a major vacation destination. Much of the borough’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, Mount Gretna’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.

In addition, Mount Gretna is home to many people who could be described as "urban sophisticates", which are people who are not only wealthy and employed in professional occupations, but highly educated to boot. Urban sophisticates have urbane tastes - whether they reside in a big or small city, a suburb, or a little town. Urban sophisticates support bookstores, quality clothing stores, enjoy luxury travel, and in big cities, they are truly the patrons of the arts, attending and supporting institutions such as opera, symphony, ballet, and theatre.

Mount Gretna is a good choice for families with children because of several factors. Many other families with children live here, making it a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families. The borough’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic success. Many people own their own single-family homes, providing areas for children to play and stability in the community. Finally, Mount Gretna’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the country, making it one of the safest places to raise a family.

As is often the case in a small borough, Mount Gretna doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.

Mount Gretna Demographics

If knowledge is power, Mount Gretna is a pretty powerful place. 73.44% of the adults in Mount Gretna have earned a 4-year college degree, masters degree, MD, law degree, or even PhD. Compare that to the national average of 21.84% for all cities and towns.

The per capita income in Mount Gretna in 2010 was $65,432, which is wealthy relative to Pennsylvania and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $261,728 for a family of four.
