Thanks to Seiber Troutman of Clarksville, TN for sending me a complete catalog of Acme Wagons (missing page 22), parts and a story about the
Craig Johnson writes,
I recently purchased at auction a wagon which to the best of my current research indicates it was made by the Acme Wagon Company in Emigsville, PA, probably in the late 1800’s or early 1900’s. I am doing research now with wagon historians to determine further identification and historical ownership if possible.
It’s last journey landed it in Aurora, Nebraska, and the wagon is now in a shed on one of my farms near Denton, Nebraska.
The wagon is in very good shape for it’s age and appears to have been stored inside for a number of years which has contributed to it’s current condition. Fortunately enough paint is still intact on the wagon which clearly indicates it was made by Acme. I cannot find any other wagon makers using that particular name during that period. It was fairly unusual for an eastern produced wagon to make it this far west during that time as their were a number of wagon builders in Illinois (John Deere/Moline) , Iowa, Missouri etc. which obviously were much closer to this area and easier to deliver.
It is a bit unique in that it carries the additional designation as “Special” on both the side printing and on the rear axle and the ACME brand name is written in scroll rather than block letters which from other photos most of their wagons carried. This particular wagon was used in corn shucking as it is a
” 3 board” side and has an extension pieces for one side that allowed the farmer to throw the corn ears up against he side and let them fall into the wagon after they were gleaned. I did see online a picture of Acme’s letterhead from correspondence in 1916 and the scroll version of their name was on that document.

Donations for the Back To School Community Shopping Day will be accepted at the Pleasureville Office located at 2606 North Sherman Street from Monday through Friday 9am-1pm up until August 14th. Clothing of all sizes and accessories such as backpacks & shoes accepted.

An excellent study on the historical life of one farm on the edge of Emigsville, Manchester, East Manchester Townships, York County, with pictures of many artifacts. Whiskey business, a WWII soldier’s experience PTSD impacts the farm and many more stories beginning with the birth of the nation.
Mr Kain writes on his facebook page: “For those of you who missed my recent presentation to the Historic Emigsville Project Story Night about “My Life on the Edge of Emigsville”, through the miracle of YouTube you can still experience the dynamism and erudite manner of the speaker. You can also throw rotten vegetables at the screen if you are not satisfied and can’t get your money back (actually, it is free). Don’t wait another moment. Sit back, relax, and go to..”
Recorded recently during Story Night at St Mark Lutheran Church, Emigsville. (52 minutes)

If you notice some of the banners missing from the main drag, or you noticed them falling apart, or you notice two people climbing up and down telephone poles, it’s because the new banners are falling apart.
The seams at the top and bottom were sealed with defective tape and the local shop that made them will be remaking some and stitching all of them.
So standby, there is going to be some up and down in the coming weeks, but hopefully they will all be happy again and back on a pole in a month or so.

Shary Smith inspired us to begin the Emigsville Heritage Project about 10 years ago and the ball kept rolling.

Historical interior print designers
Check out the new large print historical photos hung at Dawn’s My Favorite Deli in Emigsville, Pennsylvania.
That is C. A. Kauffman putting up the frames he custom cut and finished using recycled material and over 30 years of carpentry skill.
I made the copy shots and did the Photoshop work from some copies of copies using a low cost option of printing on vinyl.
One photo I shot on a perfect afternoon Fall day in 2014.
Now the deli has some Emigsville Heritage Project charm to got with the good and old school atmosphere.
