New Book Release - Two for the Woods
Location: Hall of Philosophy
Start Time: 1:30pm
New Book Release - Two for the Woods
            The new publication, Two for The Woods, written by displaced Mt. Gretnan Tom Meredith, goes on sale May 20 at the 125th anniversary Sweet Treat event sponsored by the Jigger Shop. Cost will be $25 or $20 for Mount Gretna Area Historical Society members.
            Written in the same format of photo and text spreads as his earlier Listed! it tells the story of “fraternal twins” responding to the challenges of creating real communities in the woods -- responses that were sometimes similar, sometimes different.
             With more than fifty photographs, some of them generously lent by Max Hark’s great-granddaughter, the past and the present become visible and Dr. Hark takes on a real personality. Written especially for the 125th anniversary celebration, Two for The Woods captures the “spirit of Mt. Gretna” as the “twins” grow from birth to maturity.
Call 717-964-1105 or email the Historical Society at to order. Books will also be available at the Historical Society and all Historical Society programs this summer.
