York History Series: The Hotel Era 1865-1925
Thursday, January 26 at  10:30 a.m.
The second of a 9-part series will cover the onset of the tourist era at the conclusion of the Civil War. During this time period the town acknowledged its historical heritage and the railroad and trolley were introduced. It was a time of rapid modernization and social conflict. In the early twentieth century the town saw the decline of the rails and early phase of automobile tourism. This series is presented by York historian James Kences and co-sponsored by the Museums of Old York and the York Public Library.
