The Picket in Hanover’s Square: Surely, this is York County, Pa., at its best
Linked in/Neat stuff, below: York High legend dies/An original McDonald’s arch
This equestrian statue, The Picket, is one of York County, Pa.’s finest memorials. It’s a commemoration of the major cavalry battle that took place on Hanover’s street – including on the Center Square site where the statue stands tall today. The Evening Sun’s Shane Dunlap captured this winsome scene, which is now the cover photo on that newsroom’s Facebook page. The camera angle doesn’t quite get in another resident of the square, the dog Iron Mike, standing guard with The Picket. Surely, this scene shows York County, Pa., at its best. Also of interest: ‘Revitalizing Hanover, Pa.’: Covering every angle of the town’s square.

York County plays hosts to conventions all the time, as evidenced by this week.
This week, two groups came here, though they probably didn’t see meet other.
The Association of Tourist Railroads and Railway Museums, along with the National Railway Historical Society will conclude their meeting at the Yorktowne Hotel today.
And the National Slate Association, meeting in Baltimore, took a side trip to the former slate mining area of Delta/Peach Bottom in southeastern York County.
The two groups would have a common interest: The old Ma & Pa Railroad, which connected York and Baltimore.
