Return To York County Tour Map

York Township - Iron mining in York County was one of the leading industries in the 19th century.  Over 170 mines operated in the county, removing both limonite and magnetite.  Careful examination while driving the roads can often detect remnants of these mines.  Pictured here is the waste pile of the Moser's (new) bank near Ore Valley, just east of Dallastown.  This beautiful stone house has a perfect setting along Springwood Road.  In the back yard, a large pond is found today which was the excavation of the open pit mine, then often, referred to as "banks."
