When ‘Sauer Kraut’ loaned its name to this Pennsylvania Dutch neighborhood in York

This view, looking north on South George Street shows York, Pa.’s, ‘Sauer Kraut Hill’ today. Edwin Greiman gave the boundaries of the largely German neighborhood in the late 1800s as running on South George Street between Maple and South streets. The district is hardly a hill but is part of the elevation as George Street rises from its Codorus Creek crossing. St. Mary’s Church is slightly north of Greiman’s boundaries. But this church, popular with German Catholics, attests to the German concentration in that part of York. Greiman’s ‘Memoirs’ show how Penn Park served as a playground for youngsters in the neighborhood.

The brightness also goes to knowledge and understanding, all the good stuff that a library brings to the minds of community members. So Glen Rock’s library offered a warmth to body and mind on this recent night – and has done so for years.
