New 2011 Journal of York County Heritage now available.

The brand new 2011 York County Heritage Trust Journal or York County Heritage is now available through the Trust’s museum shops. The six articles cover a gamut of subjects from York County history from the 1750s through the 1970s.

They include:
“150 Years Ago: Lewis Miller’s ‘Drilling Camp, York. Pa. 1861’” by Scott L. Mingus, Sr.
“The Beissel Influence in York County” by Elmer Q. Gleim.
“The Question of Thomas Paine at York Town” by Michael Helfrich.
“Hospital on the Hill: The Planning and Construction of York Hospital, 1925-1930” by Peter M. Hartmann, Joan B. Beekey, Suzanne M. Shultz.
“The York Charrette: April 19-27, 1970” by Raul Urrunaga.
“The Withers Family’s Ultimate Sacrifice” by Christopher Buckingham.
Plus—an added bonus of six more letters written by James Smith, York County’s signer of the Declaration of Independence.

The new 2011 journal is $6.95. The quite successful 2010 Journal of York County Heritage, with equally intriguing articles and five James Smith letters, is now available at the bargain price of $4.95. An even better deal is both the 2011 and 2010 journals together for $9.95.
