Are you going to help us unravel York County history this year? The York Daily Record/York Sunday News team of history bloggers is setting out once again to entertain you with snippets of our fascinating past.
The theme of our third annual event is “Weird York.” I will join other local historians: Jeri Jones, Jim McClure, Scott Mingus and Stephen H. Smith, as we each explore a couple of strange tales originating at various sites across the county.
The popular “Stump the Historian” segment will return, an opportunity for the bloggers, as well as the public, to perhaps learn some new aspect of our varied history.
There is a change of venue this year. The program will be held on Wednesday, December 6 at DreamWrights Center for Community Arts on Carlisle Avenue, just off West Market Street in York. It will run from 7 p.m. to approximately 8:30 p.m. There is plenty of parking available. There is a reasonable admission fee this year. Click here to purchase tickets. Food and drink will also be available for purchase.
As of this afternoon (Friday), 130 of the 170 available tickets have been sold, so don’t hesitate if you would like to join us for an entertaining and informative evening.
The two photos accompanying this post? They have to do with my two stories, which are replete with local weirdness. Come and see what they are.
