York Haven, located at the foot of the Conewago Rapids of the Susquehanna River, was laid out in 1814. The town was an important port on the Pennsylvania canal system and was the site of many mills. Keel boats brought wheat to the town for milling, after which time it would be wagoned to Baltimore. Business at York Haven would remain brisk until the railroad was built in the 1850s.

The York Haven Line has its roots in the independent Northern Central Railway which fully merged into the Pennsy in the 1910s. In the early 1900s, in conjunction with the construction of Enola Yard, the Atglen & Susquehanna "low grade" route from Enola to Parkesburg was constructed. From Enola to Wago junction, the two two-track lines paralleled each other, appearing as a four track main. This segment was collectively named the York Haven Line.

Goldsboro has its roots in the site of "Hussey's Ferry", which crossed the Susquehanna beginning in 1738. On its western side, it met the York-Harrisburg Turnpike -- a profitable stage coach route between the two cities which hugged the edge of the river.
