ABCs of York County: L winner, and vote for the best M

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

Lincoln Highway! This was suggested by, among others, friend and coworker Jess, who said she wanted to preempt “Route 30!” Jo liked this one; she writes: “I heartily agree with the votes for Lincoln Highway. York has always been so much a part of the history of that highway and one automatically thinks of the Lincoln Highway garage.”

Here, Tom Fadely of Fadely’s Auto Masters on West Market Street in West Manchester Township, is seen near a mural of the former Lincoln Highway Garage in 2004. Fadely was an admirer of the landmark garage, demolished to make way for a convenience store. York County artist Gary Gladfelter painted the mural, which reflects the cross-town Springettsbury Township garage in the 1930s.

If you’re interested, you can read much more about the Lincoln Highway on the York Town Square blog. (While you’re there, see how proud Jim was of his “J” award.)

    My pick for the letter”N” is Nixon Park.
    One hundred seventy-one acres of meadow, woodland and aquatic habitats, established in 1968. Donated by the Bob Hoffman family and named after President Richard M. Nixon.
    A working honeybee hive, live snakes, touch room, bird observation window and a reference library are found in the Nature Center. Full-time Naturalists staff the Center and offer guided nature walks and programs to pre-scheduled groups. If you would like to schedule a program for your group, call 717-428-1961. Any group of 10 or more must pre-register. The center is ADA accessible.
    Dramatic artwork and over 180 specimens from 15 different countries around the world greet visitors when they enter the Nixon Park Nature Center. New exhibits offer three large dioramas portraying stirring views of the wet/dry seasons of the African veld, the packed ice, permafrost of the Arctic Circle and the serene beauty of the Northwest Territory. The habitats depicted are home to some of the last great populations of wildlife found on earth.

    Gotta be Martin’s

    My first choice might have been Martin Library for its long-time prominence and service to the city of York. But given that Yorkers would go into battle to preserve any of their native chip makers of which, I guess Martins is the lone survivor, it would be considered no less than treason to select anything other than Martins chips.
