See new York Town Square stories and photos at this link


Remember this new link to York Town Square.


On our 10th-year anniversary of blogging, York Town Square is moving to another platform on the York Daily Record’s brand new website, WWW.YDR.COM.

York Town blog’s new address is WWW.YDR.COM/blog/yorktownsquare. So please bookmark it to see new stories and photos. YorkTownSquare’s archives, about 3,800 posts and 2,800 reader comments will remain in searchable form on this site,

This is all that will change. I’ll continue to post regularly – daily, I hope – at this new platform, which will get the stories about York County’s history and journalism before Gannett/USA Today’s big audience.

I guess you could say that YorkTownSquare continues to live in York County, but it just moved to the bigger house next door.

The other YDR staff blogs will also appear at

Our four stalwart history bloggers will remain on and their stories and photos also will be ported to the’s big, broad and far-reaching website, available at: WWW.YDR.COM/blogs.

So, check out these history bloggers:
