Stevens, Pennsylvania, is an unincorporated community and census-designated place in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, United States. The Stevens post office has zip code 17578. Stevens was named in honor of Thaddeus Stevens. It was originally also called Reamstown Station, due to its being the closest railroad station to the much larger community of Reamstown. By 1899, the community was just referred to as Stevens P.O.[1]

Local businesses[edit]

Stevens is the home of Golden Witch Technologies,[2] a mom-and-pop business started by Russ Gooding, a college philosophy major who became one of the few professional rod makers in the world for fly fishermen.[3]

Eberly Poultry[4] employs about 70 workers at their processing plant in the Stevens area. The company started offering organic poultry about 1970, and since 1984, has been all-organic. They ship their specialty poultry products throughout the US and exports to Bermuda and the Caribbean.[5]

The Schoeneck and Reamstown Elementary Schools, in the Cocalico School District, have Stevens addresses, as do several churches and the Mount Airy Kennels.
