The idea for Preserving York came after years of researching the history of my family. As I learned more about my ancestors, I became fascinated in the areas where they lived, worked, and worshiped. I soon realized others were interested in what I had learned, and creating a blog was the ideal place to share my findings.
York County, Pennsylvania is one of the most historic areas in the United States, and there’s certainly no shortage of topics that can be written about. On Preserving York you can expect to find stories ranging from area businesses no longer in operation to forgotten properties, plus everything in between. I’ll write about any topic related to York County history, no matter how ordinary, simple, or bizarre.
