As with many York County towns, transportation helped place Mount Wolf on the map.

First, it was the moving of logs down the Susquehanna River, and then the Northern Central Railway stopped there. And the borough was just a two-by-four's length away from the old road that connected York and Harrisburg.

You could say that Mount Wolf had the railroad, and Manchester had the highway. So the two communities grew up together.
