Maryland’s Eden Mill Nature Center offers high dam, intact mill, Part II

After this YorkTownSquare.com post – Maryland nature center offers high dam, intact mill – I received this wonderfully composed photo of the Eden Mill Dam. It sits on Deer Creek in northern Maryland, but it has decided York County ties. The dam and nearby mill provided electricity for Fawn Grove in southeastern York County for years. Don McClure, the photographer, provided a couple of more photos of Eden Mill Nature Center on my Facebook page.

‘FOE’ Civil War exhibit lives to fight another day in York, Pa.

You might call this the largest cardboard recycling project ever in York County. It means Wayne White’s ‘FOE’ exhibit will live to fight another day. York College of Pennsylvania students carried the dismantled cardboard-and-wood exhibit or installation from MarketView Arts on West Philadelphia Street to LSC Design on North George. The exhibit by the noted White showed everyday life for the two days that the Confederate Army occupied York in late-June 1863. The exhibit ended, and its figures will reside in storage at LSC for display at yet undetermined places in York County.

Lancaster County’s Wind Cave emits coolness more intense than car’s air conditioning

York County has so much history and just interesting natural and man-made history that it’s easy to forget that western Lancaster County’s stories tie into those on the west bank of the Susquehanna River. Lancaster County has Chickie’s Rock natural area and a town – Columbia – filled with the Turkey Hill Experience, the National Clock and Watch Museum and other attractions. Shenk’s Ferry glen is full of wildflowers. And now we learn from York Sunday News guest columnist Patricia Crider about the Wind Cave near Pequea, south of Columbia. The cave, she explains, resulted from shifting in the earth’s tectonic plates.

How a York, Pa., man documented famous Masons – and even anti-Masons

Author/educator/storyteller Judy Wolfman was visiting Country Meadows Retirement Community in West Manchester Township recently when someone handed her this compilation of ‘Masonic Articles I Have Written.’ C. Clark Julius wrote this as an author’s preface: ‘I am a historian and enjoy hunting prominent people and finding whether they are Masons. This lead to the 68 articles I have written and have again had many requests to put them in book form.’ Thus, the book

At York County’s first courthouse, there was no picnic in the pillory

Check out these new and improved stocks at the Colonial Courthouse in York, courtesy of Boy Scout Troop 20 and the York County Heritage Trust’s Facebook page. The pillories have long been a popular part of the replica along the Codorus. Of course, the real stocks in the original courthouse were not popular – with criminals. Sentences were stiff in those days. According to ‘Nine Months in York Town,’ crowds loved them, jeering and throwing rotten eggs at the criminals so confined. He would choke on dust kicked up by passing wagons. Courts ordered officials to cut off the ears of some criminals and nail them to the pillory. One doesn’t have to stand in this replica pillory for very long to understand that crime did not pay in the mid-1700s.
