Market & Beaver in York, Pa.: Intersection is changing from the day Hillary Clinton took stage there

Royal Square developers are eyeing the longtime home of the Police Heritage Museum on York, Pa.’s, West Market Street. The museum incorporated 20 years ago and moved into the building (the low building, second from right) between Weinbrom Jewelers and the old Woolworth’s store after that. Royal Square is looking at the Police Museum’s 54 W. Market St. building for retail space. Right now, Police Museum officials aren’t commenting about what this means to the place that has artifacts going back to the 1700s.

National House’s porches probably made for comfort in York, Pa.: ‘Early air conditioning, if you like.’

This then-and-now look at White Star Hotel/National House/Holy Hound shows the change from what artist William Wagner saw in 1830 to today. After this York, Pa., Daily Record ‘Picturing History’ scene appeared on Facebook York C0unty architect Richard Bono gave a bit of helpful color commentary about this York, Pa., landmark: ‘I designed the renovation of this building in 1984. It was five years after I formally began my architecture practice. This indeed is the older front facade. Though the original was not as long, and did not have as many side porches as shown. The building today was designed to the circa 1860 ‘period of significance,’ just before the Civil War. It was done from a photographic plate still in existence. I designed the cut out balusters from that photo, enlarged. The same is true with the ‘lantern’ (cupola) at the apex of the front roof. The porches (or galleries), I speculated at the time, were an early attempt at making the hotel more comfortable… early air conditioning, if you like.’
