Time for Thorns

An independent view on life.

No sense of history…

You’d think Pennsylvania in general,  and Silver Spring Township in particular would cherish the small gray stone house where the Bill of Rights was first proposed.   So what if the two-story tavern was most recently the site of Stone House Auto Sales.

The current owner legally obtained a permit for demolition,  and the building was partially destroyed before its historic value was brought to the attention of the Township.   Like Thomas Lifson,  I would be happy to donate money to rebuild and preserve this important piece of history.   I have emailed the Cumberland County Historical Society and told them so. If you’d care to,  here is the link to the society  —  http://www.historicalsociety.com/Template5.html
