Memories of The Swamp and other swimming holes
Betsy Baird of Springettsbury Township shared this former Sunday News clipping of locals, including a Mark Gillespie, swimming in ‘The Swamp,’ a swimming hole on Barshinger Creek, south of Dallastown. Betsy also remembered that area being called ‘Rye.’
I thought, as we kick off summer, it might be fun to hear memories of this and other swimming holes around the county. Some of our Dogtown crew have mentioned a couple in their area, I know, and I would love to hear your thoughts on where you swam!
