#LancasterWaterWeek | As we continue to celebrate Lancaster Water Week, it's important to highlight the fishing culture in Lancaster County. Fishing on the Conestoga River was both recreational and provided an income for local anglers. This man is using a seine (or net) to snag his catch at Nolt’s Point where Lititz Run enters the Conestoga in Manheim Township, c. 1910. The fisherman even had a small audience on the stone arch bridge. (📸 General Collection, LancasterHistory) ... See MoreSee Less

One of the most lovely spots in Lancaster. Too bad that mill isn’t still there.

#WheatlandInDetail | Buchanan’s sideboard is back after wonderful conservation work done by Gary Kopperman! Previously, the sideboard's mahogany veneer (a thin, decorative piece of wood applied on the surface) began to chip off in several places on the front. Why would the veneer chip away? Wood veneer is usually affixed with glue, and, over time, the wood is exposed to a variety of elements that eventually break down the glue and make the veneer more vulnerable to chipping. Gary was able to conserve the sideboard and refit a wood veneer, giving the century-old piece a new lease on life. Thank you, Gary!
