In search of a motel: In a recent comment on a post, Jo Ott raised put forth these memories:
“During the 1950s there was a grocery store & meat market in Shiloh (now a drycleaners) owned by the Albrights, who lived above the store. They had one daughter.
Albrights built a motel along I83 going south of York. It sat on the left, up on a hillside, readily visible to northbound drivers. As I drive north somewhere in the area of Leader Heights I see several buildings that might have been that motel.”

Paul is the unofficial or official historian of St. Mary’s and proudly pointed out its ceiling paintings of images from Mary’s life. ‘My wife and I were married in this church,’ he said. The sculpture was presented by J. Henry and Caroline Kopman.
