Behind the scenes at York, Pa.’s landmark First National Bank building

This landmark Continental Square building in York started as First National Bank in the 1920s. It weathered the Depression and then its signs changed several times over the years. Citizens Bank was the last shingle to hang there, removed in 2012. Now developer Derek Dilks is looking to give the building new life, planning a restaurant and apartments. That would represent a major change of life and activity to York’s main square, which has experienced much life and activity since the town was founded in 1741.

Obscure York, Pa., building served as nationally known artist J. Horace Rudy’s studio

Noted York County, Pa., artist J. Horace Rudy operated his art studio at 601 North Hartley Street in the first third of the 20th century. Charlie Bacas, a longtime resident of The Avenues, emailed this photo noting a vestige of Rudy’s time there – the leaded glass extension. Rudy specialized in works with glass, and his stained glass legacy appears in churches and homes around York County. This obscure building serves as another example of a now-obscure building or house around the county where a man or a woman of accomplishment did great things.
