‘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.

Most people think it is a church or some sort of citadel, perhaps a former Masonic lodge. It is, indeed, a home,’ York, Pa., Sunday News columnist Gordon Freireich wrote.
