York County’s Brook Leaf Tree House: ‘As kids, we all thought that was SO romantic

Before there was the Haines Shoe House, there was Brook Leaf Love Nest. The Shoe House (see below), now open as a bakery/ice cream shop under new management, followed the Love Nest as a honeymoon spot in York County, Pa. The Love Nest is long gone after a fire, but memories continue. Marcia Lang commented on a Love Nest post on YorkTownSquare: ‘My aunt Edie and uncle Turk (Edith and Mervin Myers) were married in Washington, DC in 1927 and spent their honeymoon in the “tree house”. We had always known the story. About 15 years ago, their grand-daughter (Tina Wallace) wrote into “Around Town” — the Dispatch? — asking for any information. I have the original article but do not have the later article confirming the “tree house”. As kids, we all thought that was SO romantic.’ Also of interest: Check out these additional quizzes and (fun) tests.
