The Journal of York County Heritage is available annually to all members of the Trust as a benefit of membership. The 2014 edition of the Journal will soon be available for $6.95 in both our Book Shop and on our
website. In this latest edition we explore the printing industry with York’s
Billmeyer family, we learn about the life of a Presbyterian minister in
southern York County during the early 19th century, as well as
explore an important religious meeting held at the York Fairgrounds in 1912.
Dominick Argento’s musical rise from his York roots is shared, as well as memories
of the Codorus Street neighborhood.
The 2013 edition is currently available for sale at the Trust’s book store. Buy each previous edition individually, or buy all four editions for the special price of $12.95. They make great gifts for the holidays and other special occasions. Copies are available for purchase online in the YCHT Museum Shop, or in the museum book store located at 250 East Market Street, York.
