This weeks City Focus finds us back in the states, taking a closer look at York, Pennsylvania. “The White Rose City” as it is otherwise known brings a very rich and unique history unlike any other in America. Known as an architectural museum for its well preserved historic structures, some dating back to the mid-18th century, York was once the temporary capital of the United States while the Continental Congress drafted the Articles of Confederation there. Adding to the history is the countries oldest fair, the 10-day long York Fair, with roots tracing back to 1765, over 10 years before the nation was founded! Oh wait, there’s more? Yes! If you like Peppermint Patties, you’ll want to definitely visit as the delicious treat was created in the city.
There is a lot going on within York’s city limits, and to add, they will be hosting their Vol. 12 PechaKucha Night in a few weeks on August 14th! You don’t want to miss it!
