Parkesburg Yesterday

Parkesburg Yesterday

While no longer atop its perch at the Strasburg Road and Main Street intersection, Parkesburg’s Horse Fountain is as much a part of Parkesburg tradition and lore as the Fountain Inn, the Parke Mansion, the train tracks and Beale Manor.

This article from the July 22nd, 1955 edition of The Coatesviille Record describes the fountain’s storied history.

While the fountain today remains in the loving care of a local private resident outside of town, individually and collectively we express hope Parkesburg’s horse fountain may again find its way back atop its Main Street perch.

Tip of the hat to Gerry Treadway for the article.
