Law Offices of York Walking Tour is set for 6 p.m., Friday, May 3. The tour includes visits to historic law offices in York. “During this fascinating and informative walk, you will see what lies behind the doors of some of York’s most venerable law firms,” a York County Bar Association release states. “Learn about the architecture of some of the City’s oldest buildings that have housed law firms for decades, and the famous cases tried in York.”

A memorial garden featuring the names of firefighters and police officers who have died in the line of duty is to the right of the York County, Pa., emergency services building. The 911 center in Springettsbury Township is protected by a curved continuous concrete wall, between 18 and 24 inches wide.

It will be an interesting night in Glen Rock, Pa., when J. Ross McGinnis takes the podium in April to talk about the Hex Murder of 1928. McGinnis is an attorney with a gift for spinning a tale – only a true, terrible tale in this case. He will tell how three young assailants attacked suspected witch Nelson Rehmeyer to break a spell in a remote hollow not far from Glen Rock, Pennsylvania.
