The Birth and Death of Hanover’s Forest Park
A Second Saturday Program
Join Charles Stambaugh on Saturday, October 14 for an interesting presentation! By 1921, The York County Trolley System had 68 cars with 85 miles of track carrying almost 11 million riders. They created and owned four trolley parks in the County. Charles Stambaugh of Northeastern York County History of Perseveration takes us back in time and touches on this first system of mass transportation in York County. He specifically zeros in on one of the trolley parks called Forest Park located in Hanover Pa. Watch as it developed into a great amazement park. Then learn how it died a slow death being replaced by a shopping mall. This is one of the most requested presentations. It was recorded twice on YouTube. The York County Writers Round Table has listed it as one of the top presentations.
