Can you identify the location of this photograph? Linked in with neat York County history stuff – March 2, 2011

The Stewartstown, Pa., Area Historical Society received this photograph as a donation and has not been able to identify the site with certainty. The small building appears to be a store, but that is not certain. Society member Doug Winemiller said one of the groups older members – age 92 – believes the scene might be from Cross Roads, but other members not sure. If you can identify this scene, contact Doug or comment below. (See enlargement below.) Also of interest: Hello, York, Stewartstown, Pa., no longer calling and Miata, pool suggest changes in small-town Stewartstown and Freight locomotive ‘telescoped’ runaway Stewartstown Railroad car.

Neat stuff from all over …. .
