ABCs of York County: D winner, and vote for the best E

blogabcs.jpgSo the winner for the best D of York County is…

Dippy eggs! Man, we’re really rocking the food topics; agricultural fair (which is, of course, full of food), then Bricker’s Fries and chicken-corn soup, and now the famous eggs!

These were also suggested by Dianne, who had the soup suggestion last week. You can read more about this great food Yorkism here.

    Farquhar Park, Farquhar Estates

    Although food seems to be the main theme of the alphabetical entries, I am going to nominate Farquhar Park for the “f” category. Here are two paragraphs from an article I found thru google. In 1897, “A. B. Farquhar presented to the city of York a tract of nearly an acre on the summit of a hill in the northwest part of York. Soon afterward, the York Improvement Company, composed of enterprising citizens, set apart for the purpose of a park 32 acres of land surrounded the gift of Mr. Farquhar. The pleasure resort, since known as Farquhar Park, has been laid off into walks and drives and beautiful grass plots and parterres.” The park is still imposing as it covers a cascading hill, and its age is reflected in the mature trees which shade the entire park. The handsome Victorian gazebo situated atop the hill on A. B. Farquhar’s plot has recently been stabilized and restored. Although the fountains were removed, in the 1960′s tennis courts were added, the park still maintains its Victorian grace and character.
    As in the streetcar suburbs of Boston, the wealthy of the late 1880′s and 1890′s in York built their large detached residences along the streetcar lines for ease in transportation into the center of the city.
