Names of York: Norman Wood
More in the ongoing series on the Names of York.
Place: Norman Wood bridge, crossing the Susquehanna River from Lower Chanceford Township to Martic Township, Lancaster County
Who was it named after? Norman Wood was a Republican state representative from Lancaster County from 1922 until his retirement in 1964.
Interesting fact: Many people have never heard of Norman Wood, at least not outside the bridge context; it could be because, as his friend, Lancaster County historian Jack W.W. Loose described him, Wood was an intensely quiet man who never sought the limelight.
Do you have a suggestion of a place in York County named for a person? If so, post a comment! I’m going to work my way through some likely ones, such as schools and parks, but I need other suggestions too!
