Another Outstanding Church . . .

can be found in the little village of Springboro. Surprising to some that such impressive houses of worship dot the countryside, but such the terrain of Pennsylvania. This Catholic church is near the historic site of Shadeland, a prominent and internationally known stock farm of a century ago.

One of the Prettiest Churches

around Crawford County is, I think, the family's old church at Watson Run. Lots of wonderful churches, though, new and old, throughout the area.

Ol' Rockin' Chair's Got Me

That song, made popular by the Mills Brothers, might set these chairs to rocking and tapping to the music. From the porch of the old Kepler Hotel, Meadville, Pennsylvania. This building overlooks the Market House next door and has been converted into apartments.

My Corner Of Pennsylvania: Meadville's Market House

Perhaps some of you from P. A. remember shopping the Market House. Frequently, I was assigned to walk down from Limber Road, early Saturday morning. Then, buy two pounds of butter from the Miller Brothers who backed their panel truck under the eaves and sold whatever was in season. "Get there early before they're sold out."

Meadville's Market House

Established in 1870, the Market House of Meadville, Pennsylvania, perseveres as a community focal point for decades. Saturday is the busiest when local farmers and crafters bring their wares to market. Special events are frequently staged honoring the area's rural foundations and traditions plus arts and crafts of the region. The local cafe is a favorite offering a variety of specialties throughout the week.
