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.
