Dillsburg, York County, Pennsylvania, nestling in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains with South Mountain in its backyard, was once known as Monaghan Settlement, and at other times, Dill's or Dills, Dillstown and even Dillston. At its incorporation on April 9, 1833, it officially became known as Dillsburg, named in honour of the first of the earliest settlers, Matthew Dill, who located here from the county of Monagahan, Ireland about 1740. In 1749 Matthew Dill became one of the court justices of York County and before this he had commanded a company against native Indian opposition. He died October 13, 1750 at the age of 52. Records show that Thomas and Richard Penn, Esquires, and Proprietaries and Governors of the Province of Pennsylvania, granted to Captain Dill, for a sum of money, a tract of land containing 504 acres.
