Shippensburg Township Casino

This rendering shows the proposed Parx Casino that is to be built in Shippensburg Township. The company is now looking for a new site to open the casino due to allegedly having to refurbish an I-81 overpass in the process.



Shippensburg Township’s proposed mini casino will be moving to a new site, executives of the gaming company said.

Greenwood Racing Inc., owners of Parx Casino in Bucks County, will evaluate other sites for its proposed mini casino after deciding the cost to develop the previously selected site to be too expensive, Bryan Schroeder, vice president of regulatory affairs and chief compliance officer, first told The Valley Times-Star July 19. This previously selected site off of Exit 29 of Interstate 81, was a 10.77-acre property on a realigned Cramer Road in Shippensburg Township.
