Even though most of the patrons that use the York County Heritage Trust Library & Archives are genealogists, the library holdings include so much more. One criterion for accepting materials is that they must have a York County collection. And what better connection is there than the high schools, current and past, in York County?
A few years ago, the Trust asked the public for assistance in filling in our collection of York County high school yearbooks. Generous donors brought in copies of Dallastown’s Spectator, Kennard-Dale’s Fawn and Susquehannock’s Calumet, to name a few. How many yearbook names can you remember?
As school districts formed, some high schools closed. Gone is Codorus High School and their yearbook, the Glen Echo. Also a distant memory is the Les Memories of Manchester High School and the Spartan from New Freedom High School. Are there other gone-but-not-forgotten high schools in your memory?
Yearbooks are located in our reading room and are available for browsing during our regular hours, Tuesday through Saturday, 9 am to 5 pm. For details about using our Library or to donate yearbooks, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
