When United States Presidents Visited York County

Wednesday, April 10, 2024, 7:30 pm
In the Fellowship Hall of the
Stewartstown United Methodist Church

A presentation entitled " When United States Presidents Visited York County " will be given by Jim McClure, former editor of the York Daily Record/Sunday News, on Wednesday, April 10, 2024, at the Stewartstown United Methodist Church. The program will begin at 7:30 p.m. and will be held in the fellowship hall. 

Since George Washington’s presidency, more than thirty presidents have walked on York County soil or rolled through on its rails. This presentation, timely in a presidential election year, explains why we’ve hosted so many presidents and some of the things they said and did during their visits here.

Before retirement in April 2019, Jim McClure was editor of the York Daily Record/Sunday News and associated
digital products since May 2004.
He also served as state editor for Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland for Gannett’s
USA TODAY Network. He is the author or coauthor of seven books
on York County history and holds a
master’s in American Studies from Penn State Harrisburg, where his research focus was on York County journalism history.

A free-will offering will be taken to support the Historical Society. For more information, contact the Historical Society at 717-993-5003.

Let’s go see Mount Vernon

The Mason-Dixon Public Library is arranging a deluxe couch trip to the estate of George Washington, in Alexandria, Virginia on April 24, 2024.  The tour will depart from the Stewartstown Baptist Church at 18631 Five Forks Road at 8:30 A.M. and return around 5:30 p.m.  We will have a guided tour of the mansion and full access to the grounds, museum, and interpretive center all for $95 per passenger.  Lunch will be on our own with onsite options including the lovely Mount Vernon Inn, their food court with sandwiches, or a picnic area, if you wish to pack.

The mansion is undergoing restoration with the “new room” currently closed, but later this year the whole mansion will be closed for at least a year, so now is the perfect time to visit.  The “new room” was an addition that George himself added to the mansion to have a large well-appointed dining room. 
Tickets are limited and reservations will need to be made before April 8, 2024.
For more information, please call the library at 717-993-2404.
