Do ghosts inhabit York County landmarks?

Spring Grove residents are full of ideas about what could be next for the Hoke House – a more than 250-year-old farmhouse currently owned by Rutter’s.

The Mayor of Spring Grove has suggested that the vacant stone house become a visitors center. Alycia Reiten of Historic York floated the idea that Rutter’s could move its convenience store to the property. The gas pumps would be nearby.

During a recent brainstorming session, Annalisa Gojmerac of Thomasville asked if the Hoke House was haunted.

The question elicited a chorus of laughter and groans.

“Maybe, we can get a ghost to move in,” said Willa Lefever of Sonnewald Natural Food.

Now, I’m not sure why Gojmerac asked her question. I didn’t have a chance to ask before she left the meeting.

I think her question may have been rooted in the belief that haunted houses are often popular tourist attractions and such a branding could benefit the Hoke House.

Annalisa, if you’re reading this, please call me and let me know. My number is 717-771-2047.

Which local landmarks do residents think are haunted? Let me know.
