Webb’s Hill is the hill south of York in Spring Garden Township. It’s known as the location of the two reservoirs owned by the York Water Company and a popular place to take a walk.
For decades, Webb’s Hill has given onlookers a birds-eye view of York and is topped with a large, lighted American flag.
The “Gazetteer of York and Adams Counties” places Slate Ridge in Peach Bottom Township. It is the site of slate mining operations in the 1800s and early 1900s that established the Delta-area as a primary source for roofing slate in this region.
