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 is now available for $6.95 in both our Museum Book Shop and online at the Trust's Museum Gift Shop and Book Store.
Celebrating the fifth year of publication, this year's Journal features an article on the Billmeyer family of printers in York and Germantown by Stephen H. Smith, as well as one on York native Dominick Argento, a Pulitzer Prize winner for music in 1975, written by the late Van R. Baker. Third time author Elmer Q. Gleim describes the last annual meeting held by the Old German Brethren Church of America at the York Fair in 1912. Finally, from Richard K. MacMaster, we learn about Josias Wilson, a Presbyterian minister in Southern York County.
