Agricultural and Industrial Museum Attraction Details
Agricultural and Industrial Museum
http://www.yorkheritage.org
The newest exhibition Air, Land & Water: Transporting People & Products in York County allows visitors the opportunity to closely examine a Conestoga Wagon, 1937 Aeronca K Airplane, and Switcher Number 2287. Through these and other displays covering carriages, bicycles, canals, and automobiles guests will experience the impact improved transportation methods had on York County from the 1700s to the present day.

Apples, automobiles, potatoes and player pianos are a few of the many stories that relate the rich agricultural and industrial heritage of York County. Visitors can enjoy an in-depth look at the history of many industries that made the county an international name in manufacturing. The large scale of the museum, once an industrial complex has provided space to reconstruct an 1830's grist mill, complete with an operating water wheel and an A-frame ammonia compressor, over 30' high, manufactured in 1904 to refrigerate a meat packing plant. The Agricultural & Industrial Museum is located along the northern terminus of the York County Heritage Rail Trail that extends from York to Baltimore.

The Agricultural and Industrial Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., admission is $6 for adults; $5 for seniors and students; and, children, 12 or younger, free. For more information call: (717) 848-1587, or visit www.yorkheritage.org
