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.

Honoring the first president of the Emigsville Heritage Project: May 3, 2 p.m.
Shary Smith inspired us to begin the Emigsville Heritage Project about 10 years ago and the ball kept rolling. She has moved on to other things now but we wanted to make her mark permanent with a native tree planted in Emigsville park. The tree was planted last fall. Refreshments to follow at the mansion.

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.
Printing large photos on vinyl, a low cost, nice quality option.
It’s the same material that is used to wrap vehicles, only mounted on foamboard, or plexiglas. or your car. The process is extremely UV stable because it is usually displayed on vehicles.
The total cost is about half of what I got quotes to print on photo paper and mounted on foamboard.
Working on a wall mural for My Favorite Deli, the building was the past home of the Grange
St. Mark Lutheran Church seen as the sun comes up in an open window.
A big thanks to Lynn Kann Of St. Mark Lutheran Church, Emigsville, who was born and raised here, for helping us with a bucket truck from the Mt. Wolf electrical business he works for dietznauman.com. We installed 16 banners today starting at 7 am, it was 17 degrees! but warmed up quickly.
The Dixies Used Furniture banner will go up as soon as I can get someone to spot a ladder for me. That is the curve on the north part of town and was too dangerous without a flagger team for traffic using the bucket truck.
The Blue and Cream banners replace the red and gold ones we installed in 2007
We are in the process of replacing the maroon and gold banners that line North George Street and Emig Road that we installed about six years ago.
If you would like to replace your banner, please contact us. If you have a business, church, family name or organization in the Village of Emigsville, we would love to share your identity with our neighbors.
The new banners will be dark blue and cream.
We have approximately 25 banners to sell for $150 each, that includes installation and maintenance until they wear out by your Emigsville Heritage project volunteers. We are a non-profit and are selling at cost to us. A local printer will create the banners. Banners will be printed when we have all 25 banners purchased.
Updates: When all the checks are in we can purchase the banners
