New Freedom Borough is located in the southern portion of York County, Pennsylvania. The Borough borders Maryland and is part of the famous Mason-Dixon line. New Freedom was incorporated in 1873 and originally named "Freedom" for the Free family. Since there was another town already in existence with this name, "New Freedom" was chosen as the official name.

People of German, English, and Scotch-Irish descent settled the area. The rich, fertile soil provided a comfortable living for farming and agricultural opportunities. During the twentieth century, New Freedom was the home of a canning factory, an insulator factory and a veneer plant.
The railroad was a primary factor for early growth of the town. The rail service established a vital means of commerce and transportation until Hurricane Agnes in 1972 destroyed much of the rail line and bridges in York County. The railroad path has since become a part of the Rail Trail of the York County Park System. The Rail Trail provides safe space to jog, bike, and walk.

Located 30 miles North of Baltimore, Maryland and 38 miles South of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania the town is changing from an area of commerce and minor industry to a suburbanized community.
