Never Built - The Town of Pleasant Garden & Other Curiosities



The files of the York County Heritage Trust contain an old hand-drawn plan of the Town of Pleasant Garden.  The town has named streets and contained 175-lots, however it is not dated.  This town was never built, and until recently, the planned location was unknown.  We'll explore if the town was ever started. This presentation focuses on the discovery of the planned location for the Town of Pleasant Garden.  The other curiosities deal with a bridge and a railroad; both planned, but never built.  The bridge may have been the reason the Town of Pleasant Garden as drawn up in the first place. Within eastern York County in January 1865, four months prior to the end of the Civil War, a new railroad was surveyed.  This railroad was to parallel the canal south from Wrightsville, passing through Long Level.  If that railroad were built, maybe we’d have the Town of Pleasant Garden today.  Enjoy dinner in The Rookery and this fascinating presentation over dessert and coffee.
