Jefferson Archives

The York County community of Jefferson is proud of its history. The citizens of the small town (2010 population–733) will be celebrating its 150th anniversary in 2016. I don’t know how they will marking the sesquicentennial, but they will have to go some to top the 1966 Jefferson Centennial celebration.

Massed Bands in 1932 A friend recently shared a panoramic photograph taken by Hoffman Studio, Hanover. Part of it is shown above. The photo is captioned “Southern York County Band Association, Aug. 20, 1932.” He looked at the newspaper microfilm, at York County Heritage Trust, of the Glen Rock Item.
