York Springs Community Day
Over 150 years ago...
In August 20, 1868, the Court of Quarter Sessions in Gettysburg granted the petition of the citizens of York Springs to incorporate as the Borough of York Springs. We celebrate that milestone in our community’s history through York Springs Community Day.
Community support for last year’s 150th Celebration was overwhelming and we’re looking forward to another great day of fellowship, fun & food at many different locations all over York Springs.
