Red Lion’s Springvale School: Now this is the way a one-room building should look

Now this is the way a one-room school should look. Bell tower (not all schools had such towers). Flag flying (between two trees). Students enjoying the outdoor (or in this case a photo op.). This is the Red Lion area’s Springvale School in 1913, as it appears in the book ‘All in One Room’. (You won’t recognize it, but see the school today below).

‘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.

‘Lewis Miller’s People:’ New book portrays 700-plus York countians in the 1800s

Donald Shelley, executive director of the Henry Ford Museum, said the 1966 publication of 19th-century York countian Lewis Miller’s work would provide a service for students and historians in opening up a new field of study in American social life, customs, arts and the like. His prediction came true. Now a complementary volume to that now out-of-print book is becoming available in the fall. ‘Lewis Miller’s People’ is a collection of more than 700 of Lewis Miller’s portraits in the collection of the York County Heritage Trust.
