Description - York by Scott D. Butcher

York has been has been at the crossroads of American history for over 265 years. The first town west of the Susquehanna River, it was an early gateway for westward migration, played roles in both the American Revolution and Civil War, and contributed greatly to the Industrial Revolution. Take a tour of this historic town from humble eighteenth century buildings withstanding the test of time to the brand new office towers that herald a twenty-first century revitalization. The facades of York tell stories about early settlement, the fight for independence, economic prosperity, decline, and rebirth. The streets are an open-air gallery of architectural achievement, offering a diverse array of styles encompassing portions of four centuries. Beautiful photographs and stories showcase the charm and wonder of a small-town growing into a metropolis of historic relevance.
