Mission Statement

The Northern York County Historical and Preservation Society (NYCHAPS) strives to inspire by connecting the lessons of the past to the challenges of today. Through hands-on experience, the past culture of the area is brought to life in a deeper and richer educational experience. Through preservation, research, and our collections, NYCHAPS seeks to inspire a different way of learning history.

Description

A living, hands-on museum that strives to give the experience of history while also passing on a history lesson! The work of the Dills and Eichileburger family is preserved at the Tavern and Maple Shade Barn. Classes and events are around colonial crafts (wood working, blacksmiths, gun making) cooking (open hearth, butter churning, etc) farming and distilling. Just as it was in the late 1700 and early 1800s.
