Trip Planner USA  /  Pennsylvania  /  Lancaster County  /  Mount Joy
Mount Joy is a borough in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, United States. The population was 7,410 at the 2010 census.Name and originMount Joy is often named in lists of "delightfully-named towns" in Pennsylvania Dutch Country, along with Intercourse, Blue Ball, Lititz, Bareville, Bird-in-Hand and Paradise.The name is often shortened to Mt Joy, as in Mencken (1963). However, citizens of the town often point out that this abbreviation is not proper because the town is not named for a mountain but is named after the Good Ship "Mountjoy" which famously broke a Catholic siege during the Siege of Derry. Due to the early settlement of the Protestant Scots-Irish in this region of Pennsylvania, many of the municipalities in the area were given names common to the North of Ireland such as: Derry Township, Londonderry Township, South Londonderry Township, Mount Joy Township, East Donegal Township, West Donegal Township, and Rapho Township.
