Return To York County Tour Map

Springfield Township - The Feigley Bank was one of over 170 iron mines that once worked in York County.  The limonite mined here was hauled to Glatfelter's Station, where it was transported by rail to numerous iron furnaces.  This mine operated from about 1785 until the 1840's.  According to scuba divers, the water depth is about 70 feet deep.
Springfield Township -  Harpers Formation phyllite is well exposed at Nixon County Park near Jacobus.  Not only do nice exposures of the phyllite occur within the park, but the park also hosts a self-guided geology trail.  Photo be Bill Greenawalt lastscan.jpg (634224 bytes)
