The historical sketch begins: "Carlisle, the county seat of Cumberland County was founded in 1751, when Pennsylvania was an English Province under the proprietorship of the three Penns -- John, Richard and Thomas. The lot occupied by the Carlisle Deposit Bank was the first grant of record in Carlisle, May 17, 1751."
