The Historic Hellam Preserve, a private restoration effort, played host to a gathering recently. A York, Pa., Daily Record/Sunday New story – ‘Hellam farmhouse a treasure trove of history’ – says the anonymous owner has spent five years improving the property from an old homestead to preserve. ‘On Sunday, the renewal process culminated in a private opening for the owner’s family and friends, who wandered among the sprawling outbuildings, took in the history and bought prints of Rob Evans’ pieces,’ the story states.

Chainsaw art is growing in popularity around York County, Pa. These former-tree-trunks-turned-into-art, like all outside art, won’t last forever. In the case of South Western High Schools ‘Mustang,’ this is the third such piece of art.

York, Pa.’s, First Friday visitors will have an opportunity to see a special art exhibit featuring Visions of the Susquehanna art. This art, as the name suggests, provides scenes along the Susquehanna River. The art was captivating when exhibited at York College of Pennsylvania several years ago, and some of the pieces are part of the permanent collection of the Susquehanna Gateway Heritage Area.
