Thirty Foot History Tour
Saturday, July 21, 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
For the past 3 years, local historian James Kences has offered a series of presentations on York’s history. A visual chronology has been developed as an approach to understanding the long history of this town for hundreds, thousands - and with the inclusion of geology - even millions of years. The full “table top” chronology has never been displayed before, nor has the large collection of such research materials as letters, diaries, and other sources ever appeared together in one place. That is exactly what is intended for this event, the “Thirty Foot History Tour.” By having a chance to view the history as a long flowing stream, a new understanding may emerge.
