May Meeting

The Red Lion Area Historical Society will hold its regular monthly meeting on May 25, 2017. The featured speaker will be railroad buff, Walter Holloway. He will share the history of the narrow gauge railroads. They eventually were merged to create the famous Ma and Pa Railway that was so influential in the growth of the communities of southern York County.

The meeting will be held at St John’s UCC, 161 North Main Street, Red Lion, at 7:00 pm. Entrance is off the parking lot behind the church. All meetings are free and open to the public.
