York has been America's historic crossroads since the town was laid out in 1741. From 1777 through 1778, it was the seat of American government from which the Second Continental Congress led the fledgling nation. Less than a century later, York became the largest northern town occupied by the Confederate army. Gilded Age prosperity created a vibrant and growing town throughout the first half of the twentieth century. York showcases this period with a unique collection of vintage postcards. Travel back to an era of trolley cars, five-and-dimes, downtown department stores, and high-style buildings that all helped to define this dynamic community.
