Place: The Howard Tunnel, along the Heritage Rail Trail County Park
Who was it named after? John Eager Howard of Baltimore was a railroad investor, a Revolutionary War colonel and a politician.
Interesting facts: We’ve been trying to cover some ground on this blog about a claim the county parks make about the tunnel, so its name should be familiar to regular readers!

Do you have a suggestion of a place in York County named for a person? If so, post a comment! I’m going to work my way through some likely ones, such as schools and parks, but I need other suggestions too!
