New Historic York Inc. warehouse to show off its architectural wares

Historic York’s Karen Arnold stands amid items salvaged from old buildings in and around York. The organization’s Architectural Warehouse moved earlier this year from North George Street to Prospect Street.
For researchers doing history in York County, Historic York Inc.’s vast files on important buildings is a reliable repository to draw from. The staff there are accessible and welcoming.
The organization has been operating an architectural warehouse for many years and recently moved to a new site, 465 Prospect Street.
In a Saturday open house, Historic York is ready to show off its wares … .

Attendees can see porch columns, a staircase, light fixtures, stained-glass windows and farmhouse doorway.
And bathtubs, several of them. The type you used when you visited grandma.
