This program will also be streamed live on Facebook and a recording will be available later on YouTube.

With its opening in 1920, the Ramsay Theater brought the “silver screen” to Stewartstown. This program will explore the theater’s history and its impact on Stewartstown and the surrounding area. Linebaugh also will talk about how small-town movie houses in Stewartstown and in small towns throughout York County added to and shaped community.

Linebaugh, a longtime leader in the Stewartstown Area Historical Society, explains that  “As Ramsay kept up with new film trends, showing silent movies like ‘Double Speed,’ then talkies such as ‘Little Women,’ followed by Technicolor films like ‘Gone with the Wind,’ the theater delivered the magic of the movies and connected the community to the national imagination.”

Dr. Linebaugh is professor of Historic Preservation in the School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation at the University of Maryland. He was named Dean ad interim in May 2018 and served until Summer 2021. His wide work at the local level includes documentation of historic sites.

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