Lancaster, Pa. bus trip set for April 30

By Staff | Feb 25, 2011

All welcome aboard the Pack Horse Ford Chapter’s Daughter of the American Revolution chartered bus tour on April 30 for an adventure in Lancaster, Pa.

This trip will include a stop at the Central Market and scheduled tours at two museums – the Lancaster Quilt and Textile Museum and the Heritage Center Museum – all within walking distance of each other. If you prefer to shop, you may stroll in the country’s oldest farmers’ market. We will enjoy a specially prepared homemade lunch in a private dining room.

You won’t want to miss the highlight of our tour, the historic Rock Ford Plantation. Built circa 1794, this Georgian style brick mansion has been remarkably preserved and essentially unchanged architecturally. On July 4, 1791, General Hand and his wife entertained George Washington for tea during the president’s visit to Lancaster. Although the precise location of this tea was not contemporaneously documented, it was traditionally believed to have taken place at Rock Ford Plantation.

On our way home, we will make a brief snack stop.

We will leave the Shepherdstown Fire Hall’s back parking lot promptly at 7 a.m. and will return to by 6:30 p.m.

Enjoy a fun-filled day for only $75 per person. Price includes bus transportation, all admission fees, lunch and gratuities.

This trip is limited to the first 50 paid reservations and is open to all. For more information or to receive a reservation form, contact Cheryl Brown at 304-876-3817 or Kathy Sholl after 7 p.m. at 304-876-1250.
