would that another John D. Rockefeller Jr.
could be found."

The Jesse McCreary House
This pre-civil war house, mostly log, in Hunterstown, Pennsylvania
was built in 1860 and occupied by the village tailor
and his wife Jane. The McCrearys had
two daughters. Alice McCreary
was the second wife
of the village doctor, Charles E. Goldsborough.
Martha McCreary married David L. Plank. Their son, Edward Stewart
better known at "Gettysburg Eddie"
was a well known pitcher for the
Athletics and is in the Baseball Hall of Fame.
(Linda Cleveland, Local Historian)
"Hunterstown Woodworks" ...
the vision to see....
the faith to believe,
and the courage to do."

by Rev. Joseph Henderson in 1792. Bought by Abraham Fickes and Jacob Taughenbaugh in 1802. Confederate cavalry visited in
1863 seeking fresh mounts. Young Joseph W. Taughenbaugh nearly lost his pony "Sam", but a compassionate Confederate
officer allowed it was "not big enough to carry a man" 5th and 6th generation descendants of Jacob Taughenbaugh
presently own and occupy the house and lands.

"Instead of building a sterile 'McMansion'
on a postage stamp lot in
a new development
that destroys historic property, why not restore
an old house in Hunterstown?"
Artist Edwin L. Green
