Willow Street is a census-designated place (CDP) in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, United States. In the early part of the 20th century the main thoroughfare in town was lined with willow trees on both sides for the length of the town, hence the community's name. As time marched on and the town grew, the road was widened and sidewalks were installed which required the trees be removed. Only a few of the original trees remain to this day. It is the location of the Hans Herr House, the oldest homestead in Lancaster County.
The median income for a household in the CDP was $45,103, and the median income for a family was $58,611. Males had a median income of $43,580 versus $25,523 for females. The per capita income for the CDP was $25,292. About 1.2% of families and 2.8% of the population were below the poverty line, including 2.6% of those under age 18 and 3.8% of those age 65 or over.

Public & Private Institutions Of Learning
Education is provided by public, private and home schools. State governments set overall educational standards, often mandate standardized tests for K–12 public school systems and supervise, usually through a board of regents, state colleges, and universities. Funding comes from the state, local, and federal government. Private schools are generally free to determine their own curriculum and staffing policies, with voluntary accreditation available through independent regional accreditation authorities, although some state regulation can apply.
