Intercourse is a small village located in Lancaster County in southeastern Pennsylvania. It has a population of approximately 1,500 residents. The town of Intercourse is widely known as a tourist town due to its location in the heart of Pennsylvania's Amish County. It's about ten miles east of the city of Lancaster on PA Route 240. Intercourse is also somewhat of a curiosity due to its' unusual name. So much so that the sign posts for the town are often stolen. The movie "Witness," starring Harrison Ford was filmed in the town of Intercourse and the surrounding area. Intercourse offers over 100 galleries, restaurants and shops that sell authentic Amish food and crafts. You can also take a horse and buggy ride through Intercourse. The community of Intercourse was founded in 1754 and originally named Cross Keys. The name was changed to Intercourse in 1814 and the town's website sites the following theories for the origins of the name: "The Old Kings highway from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh (now the Old Philadelphia Pike) ran east and west through the center of the town. The road from Wilmington to Erie intersected in the middle. The joining of these two roads is claimed by some to be the basis for the town Cross Keys or eventually Intercourse. A final idea comes from the use of language during the early days of the Village. The word intercourse was commonly used to describe the fellowship and social interaction and support shared in the community of faith, which was much a part of a rural village like this one.
