The History Center's historic David Tannenberg Organ is played each week by a member of the local chapters of the American Guild of Organists.  The concerts are free and open to the public.

Built by David Tannenberg, a prominent organ builder of the 18th century in south central Pennsylvania, the organ was originally constructed in 1804 for York’s Christ Lutheran Church. It was the last organ built by Tannenberg, as he suffered a stroke during the installation and died two days later. The organ was first played at Tannenberg's funeral.

In addition to our talented York organists, members from the Harrisburg and Lancaster chapters of the American Guild of Organists will also be performing this season. Don't forget to stop by the History Center's Gift and Bookshop during or after the concert to enjoy a 25% discount off purchases of $5 or more.

Whip up a batch of rock cakes with your family!

With Hagrid being forbidden to use magic, his kitchen was a lot like the summer kitchen at the Colonial Complex. Ron, Hermione, and Harry spent a lot of time in Hagrid’s Hut eating rock cakes and drinking tea he prepared. Get hands-on with the types of tools Hagrid would have used for hearth cooking and mix up some rock cake batter that you will cook in a Dutch oven. Make your own tea blend to sip while you enjoy your rock cakes.

Families will be provided the supplies and tools for mixing a small batch of rock cakes. Groups of 6 or more will be divided into two smaller groups and provided supplies for two batches of rock cakes. Registrants will be able to try out some colonial cooking techniques and make their own herbal blend for a cup of tea.

Instructor: Ellen Gibb became involved with the Horn Farm Center after retiring from a career in the food industry, that included working at McCormick and Hanover Foods. At the Horn Farm, Ellen’s passion became the squirrel tail bake oven. Her experience with the bake oven and hearth cooking will be shared as part of the experience of “Hagrid’s kitchen.”

The York County Writers' Round Table networks writers and researchers of York County and regional history. The group meets on the first Thursday of every quarter at 7:00 p.m. at the Historical Society Museum, Library & Archives a 250 E. Market St.  This event is free and open to the public.

On September 6, Writers' Roundtable will feature Bart Stump who will speak on the Susquehanna petroglyphs. The Susquehanna petroglyphs are ancient rock carvings that date back 1,000 years. Carved by the Algonquian Indians who lived in the area, the carvings depict animal tracks, animal and human figures, mystical thunderbirds, and constellations. But what do they mean? Do they have religious significance? Are they art? A map? A calendar? A teaching tool? Or, are they a combination of all these theories? Bart Stump, Dallastown Middle School teacher, has written widely on the petroglyphs and other historical topics.

The Writers' Roundtable brings together writers and researchers of York County history, who publish books, newsletters and digital content to benefit the public. For more information, contact Lila Fourhman-Shaull, Director of the Library & Archives, York County History Center: lfourhman-shaull@yorkhistorycenter.org, or (717) 848-1587, ext. 223.
