‘A’ work now being done in improved York Haven one-room school

Linked in/Neat stuff: ‘Lewis Miller’s People’/Abe at the Junctionkohr1
Steve Kohr, well-known for his ownership of the Shady Lane estate and his generosity in opening that East Manchester Township treasure to the public, is working on this 1895 schoolhouse at 3100 Grandview Drive, York Haven. ‘We reproduced the bell tower, slate roof, wood repairs, repointed stone w/ lime mortar …,’ he wrote on Facebook. Check out Kohr & Sons Facebook page for more. (See bell tower work below). Also of interest: Check out these stories and photos about one-room schools in York County.

‘Bell tower on the way to job site, built in the shop by (sons) Adam & Micah,’ Kohr & Sons Facebook page states. For a bunch of photos of the belltower in various stages of installation, check out this Flickr gallery.





All kinds of other neat stuff from all over … .


Outside Downton

This is two-fer. It shows York County history aficionados June Lloyd and Rebecca Roberts in England with their York Daily Record. It’s a popular practice for York countians to bring the YDR with them on trips, capture a photo and send it to the newspaper. Here are a bunch of those in the YDR travel photo gallery. For more, see YDR Insider post: YDR delivered to Downton Abbey. Also, June Lloyd now is back in the states and ready to sign the book she edited with Lila Fourhman-Shaull: ‘Lewis Miller’s People.

And on the topic of the new book on Lewis Miller, Rebecca Baker purchased No. 1 today at the York County Heritage Trust, the book’s publisher. Many more will follow. A reception, open to the public, is set for 2 p.m. today, at the Historical Society Museum, 250 E. Market St., where the editors will sign the book. 







Scott Mingus tells more about the Nov. 19 Civil War Roundtable meeting: York CWRT. He also tells about a Nov. 18 event at the Hanover Junction train station.
