Paradise, PA History
The original settlers were French Huguenots. They secured land in Lancaster’s Pequea Valley, in 1712. Local Indians were already settled in the area, and they lived peacefully with the new settlers. There is a long standing dispute over who named the town; however, it is widely believed that David Witmer Sr. named the town. His own family criticized the decision, saying it should have been named ‘Pequea’ or ‘Tanawa’, in honor of the Indian chief.
David Witmer Sr. was a friend of George Washington and also a supervisor during the construction of the Lancaster-Philadelphia Turnpike. This road played an important role in the development of the village of Paradise. It is now Route 340 and is still referred to as “Old Philadelphia Pike”.
