Architectural History Tour – “Hidden Treasurers 1”

October 20, 2012 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

The Historic Preservation Trust of Lancaster County announces its Architectural History Tour on Saturday, October 20th.

Tucked quietly in the Northeastern corridor of the county, “Hidden Treasures 1” will feature sites such as the Peter Martin Log Cabin in New Holland; Bangor Episcopal Church in Caernarvon; Bowmansville Roller Mill in Brecknock, and more –  totaling nine in all!

The tour will take place from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. allowing plenty of time for participants to stop at some of the numerous farm markets, enjoy a picnic (Historic Poole Forge is an ideal spot) and leisurely stroll through the sites located on the autumn countryside.  The tour from beginning to end is approximately 15 miles.  Tickets are $18 for members, $20 for non-members and $10 for children 12 and under.  They can be purchased in advance by contacting the Preservation Trust office at 291-5861, visiting Rhorer’s Flower stand at Central Market or Yoder’s Market.  Tickets can also be purchase the day of the event at Historic Poole Forge (1940 Main St., Narvon, PA 17555).

As this event will open the door for the public to observe some of the finest, historically significant structures in Lancaster, its proceeds will also benefit the Trust’s mission to “preserve and protect Lancaster County’s rich historic and architectural character.”    We hope you will join us!
