Tuesday, May 18- X Marks the Spot: A Tour of York County Maps
Join us as Dr. Adam Bentz, Asst. Dir. of Library & Archives, shows us some of the most prominent and interesting maps in the YCHC’s collection. From bird’s-eye views to colonial land grant maps, we will see a variety of maps and learn what makes them useful for research. If you’ve always wondered what a “Sanborn map” is or have never seen our map of county cemeteries, join us for this look into our library resources.
June 8, 2 PM- Nicole Smith, Director of the Library and Archives, will show us part of a new acquisition, photographs from York County Commercial and Aerial. Founded in 1947, it was in operation until 2016 and has been long been regarded as a high-quality source for creative commercial, industrial and aerial photography.
