Slaves had a friend in Quakers

I really enjoyed reading this article. I find our local history facinating. I wish there were more books published like one Brad Rentzel did year's ago on the history of Mt. Wolf. I read that little book to tatters when I was younger and lived there. Thanks to the writer of the article found here. Another little piece of the puzzle is given here in the big picture of what helped us become the communities we are today.

If you do not already have one, try to get a copy of "The Patterns of Our Past," written as part of the county's 250th celebration. It details exactly WHY York County, for better or worse, is the way it is. Also, years ago, Penn State York used to offer a whole range of non-credit local history classes. I don't know if they still do, but I took some and they were great!

The YCHT also has some great local history seminars. They recently paired with the County Parks for a bike ride and brunch.
We have such a diverse and important history here. It's great to see other people interested in it too!
