Central York students capture York County history and release it to YouTube

This photo was submitted by Dianne Bowders of York Township, Pa., to ydr.com’s online Historic photos of York gallery. The Gates House/Plough Tavern site was a setting for recent videos produced by a Central York High School class. Dianne writes: ‘Mid 1960’s Postcard: “Gates House and Plough Tavern…York, Pennsylvania. Front view of the Golden Plough Tavern built in 1741 of medieval Germanic half-timber construction and the General Gates House built in 1751, residence of General Horatio Gates at the time York was the capital of the United States and site of the Conway Cabal, 1778.”
