History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

The town is named for Matthew Dill, an immigrant from County Monaghan, Ireland, who settled the town in 1740. The village became a center for local agriculture.

During the Civil War's Gettysburg Campaign, Dillsburg was twice invaded by Confederate cavalry, first by Albert G. Jenkins's brigade, then by Maj. Gen. J.E.B. Stuart's division.

Dill's Tavern and the Rev. Anderson B. Quay House are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
