Brain, thanks for posting more info about Rock Ford.

My gr gr gr grandmother, Susan Hiltz  (her Mother's last name was Baker) was born in the Philadelphia area in the early 1800s. She married an Irishman, Bleakney Smith (the original Smith in my family ~ he arrived there from Ireland ) and they moved to Ontario, Canada. Susan's parents were living in Pennsylvania  in the 1700s. Perhaps this is why I seem to ping so strongly with this estate. I almost feel like I've been there.

Pennsylvania is very beautiful. The last time I was there was two years ago.

The treasure hunt sounds like a lot of fun and I am very glad that the Junior League saved Rock Ford when they did !

Jo, you have an interesting history!  Did you know that the first successful turnpike in the nation was between Philadelphia and Lancaster.  There was a lot of interaction between the two cities during revolutionary times.

Jeff, not only fun but it will surely raise awareness of our local history, especially for the kids.
