Biglerville, PA Library, Peaches,

A Bit of Local PA History
Recently Jim and I spent some time exploring the local area near our place outside Gettysburg.

Harbaugh-Thomas Library.
The reading room in the new Biglerville, PA Library is so inviting - large, airy, light-filled room. Completely wi-fied. Calls out to you to come and sit a spell. The library is part of the Adams County Library System.

We stopped in to watch the craftswoman demonstrating wheat-weaving. Just missed her. But will definitely make it for the Lacemaking demonstration on September 5.

The series of special Saturday events is part of the celebration of the 100th birthday of the Thomas Brothers Country Store. The Country Store has a long-interesting history which includes being a favorite of the Eisenhowers when they were in-residence at their near-by farm.

This area is in the heart of the PA apple industry. After exploring the Library we drove down the way to the National Apple Museum. Its one of the best "attic museums" I have ever investigated. We watched a very informative film produced by the Apple Growers and U. Penn about the apple industry. Let me tell you successfully growing apples is way more complicated that being Johnny Appleseed.














PEACHES
Hollabaugh's Orchard Store on the Carlisle Road is a must stop for us whenever we are at our place. For a long time it was my landmark so that I did not miss the next right turn - our road.

We have been eating PA peaches from Hollabaughs Orchards in Biglerville all week. And they are deeee-licious. Jim filled a large cloth bag to the brim and mixed the varieties. I partcularly love mixing white peaches with the familiar yellow.
