Rewriting Linglestown history

Linglestown, a capital ...

Lower Paxton Township was established in 1767. The township was a part of Lancaster County at that time, and covered a much larger land area than it does today. It was carved into seven municipalities by 1850.

Linglestown was founded in 1765, two years before the creation of the township. Based on this chronology of events, I hereby declare Linglestown the capital of Lower Paxton Township.

Other stuff

* Welcome to spring 2008. Below is a sign of spring – a township streetsweeper today cleaned up the cinders at Koons Park’s main lot. Snow is forecasted for Saturday morning, so hopefully this job wasn't done too soon (limited accumulation currently is predicted).

* I'm still seeking photos of "man caves" in Linglestown. If you have no idea what I'm referring to, CLICK HERE and HERE to get up to speed on this Gazette cultural investigation.
