This unexpected thing was fished from a York County, Pa., creek in a cleanup

Some were surprised with what was fished out of Lightner’s Creek in Manchester Township recently. That creek produced a casket lid in a recent cleanup. York has been home to a casketmaker for decades – York Casket. In fact, before and after York Casket formed in 1932, funeral homes made caskets in many small towns around York County. Or rather furniture makers operated funeral homes. Or both. No telling the source of the Lightner Creek casket lid or how it ended up in the creek. But casketmaking has been part of York County’s woodworking landscapes for centuries.

More than pretty pictures. How fun Cerebrun photos give serious glimpses about land use in York County, Pa.

This is just a striking photo by York, Pa., Daily Record/Sunday News’ photographer Jason Plotkin. Striking because it shows York County’s still-rich agricultural land. And informative because it indicates yet another alt-use of this land, apart from farming. This was the scene of the recent Cerebrun on Rexroth Farms in Conewago Township that taxed the body and mind.
