Beginnings [1]

Springettsbury — Erected from Spring Garden Township, April 20, 1891, and named for Springett Penn, grandson of the Founder. Part of Springettsbury Manor was laid off by Penn's heirs in 1722. Almost adjoins City of York. Valuable estates abound in the township. The oldest house in York County is in the eastern part of this township. It is a two-story stone house built by John Shultz, in 1737. Members of the Continental Congress were entertained in this house. Many mills were erected, in early days, along Codorus Creek. Villages — Springett, Glades, Stony Brook, Hiestand, Mount Zion, Spring Plains, Pleasureville and Plank Road Population in 1940 was 3,790. [2000 census records the population at slightly less than 24,000]
