Historic Farmhouse Saved from PENNDOT's Wrecking Ball
PENNDOT Responds to Committee Efforts
This historic farm house has been saved from condemnation. PENNDOT proposed a new alternative in February 2004 that would reduce the widening of Byberry Road from four and five lanes in width - to three lanes in width between Philmont Avenue and Pine Road. The road would be widened on the north side, sparing this house which is located on the south side.
to the collective efforts many people this house will remain a vital link to our
past for generations to come! A special thank you to the Historic Committee, who
was instrumental in starting the process to save this house by researching the
history with local area preservationists and experts in Harrisburg. The committee
members are: Sandy Yarnall (owner of PineBerry Farm), Linda Geiger, Judy Moss
and Linda Stackhouse.
