The Wolfs have deep roots in York County. Since taking office the governor has continued to live in Mount Wolf, a town named for an ancestor.

Flight 93 took off from Newark, New Jersey, on Sept. 11, 2001, with 44 people aboard, bound for San Francisco. It crashed in a Pennsylvania field, killing everyone aboard.
