|Corner of the Tobacco Shed that houses the Conestoga Historical Society|
It was an ordinary day. Visiting the Conestoga Area Historical Society at 51 Kendig Road in Conesto- ga, Penn- sylvania. I didn't even know the place existed until a week of so ago when I saw an article in the local newspaper titled "Athletes O're The Ages." Seems the Historical Society was presenting a special exhibit called "Play Ball: A Retrospective Exhibit of Over 100 Years of Athletic Activities in the Penn Manor Area."
|Directly inside the door is this showcase|
|Article that featured my tour guide, Jim|
Kauffman. We both knew some of the same
players from Lancaster County.
|Gloves and balls from the good old days.|
|Many scrapbooks loaded with articles and photos lined the|
display cabinets. Most are on loan from private collections.
|These are Native American artifacts found on location.|
