Antiques demonstrate York County’s, Central Pa.’s connection with animal world

What is it about animals that captures the attention of everyday folks – and antique collectors? Antiquing is a Central Pennsylvania pastime, so there are a lot of shows around here. And if you go to any show, animal stuff is everywhere. Such was the case at the Greater York (Pa.) Antiques Show at the York Expo Center this past weekend. A carved wood cow’s head with glass eyes was offered up by Country Corner Antiques.

Who says things don’t change in York, Pa.?

There’s a lot going on in this York, Pa., Daily Record/Sunday News file photo of the old Stone Container/Smurfit Stone site. York College of Pennsylvania has acquired the former mill buildings, upper right, and rehabbed at least one of them. One of them, the old Philip King house, has been in the eye of preservationists who fear its demise. The Penn Street bridge is in the spotlight because it symbolically and physically connects YCP’s expanding campus and the city. The Codorus Homes, York’s first public housing units along the Codorus at the left edge of the bridge in this photo, face demolition. The greenway along the creek will thus be extended. New public housing has gone up nearby on former Helen Thackston Park land. Who says things don’t change in York, Pa.
