Boy, Linglestown square is beginning to look like a used car lot with all the "4 Sale" signs everywhere you look. I can just hear all the people who favor the roundabouts when the project is completed and all these new establishments take over..."Linglestown is too busy, they pushed out the little man, the "history is gone" and it sure doesn't have the small, old town feel to it anymore.
I am sorry to see and hear that these business and home owners had to pack up and move out of the Linglestown square area. Could the "Eagle Hotel" be next??

For Sale...just like all the other businesses in Linglestown. Here today, gone tomorrow. Wallabee's, Senor Pepe's (didn't hear too many positives), St. Thomas Creamery, St. Thomas Barber, John's Service Center... Best of luck to the other new establishments...Chocolate Cafe, The Flower Shop, The Winery and the 2 other coming soon eateries/bakery rumored for the square...
Hey, let's put in a roundabout, that will surely bring in some cash from visitors and get these businesses rolling...or maybe just realize the people do not see the "Village of Linglestown" as some great destination spot.

Correction- St. Thomas Barbershop( Jim's Barber shop) did not want to close............. That shop was on the square for 50yrs........ and he is quite upset. His lease was not renewed, along with some other underhanded crap........
So keep on the look out for more
