Glen Rock is situated in a valley along Codorus Creek in Shrewsbury Township in southern York County. Incorporated in 1860, the town is located on what once was a major north–south rail line that linked Harrisburg with Baltimore, Maryland. This important transportation link helped the town prosper with sewing factories, furniture factories, coach works, ironworks, and a nearby distillery. Although the rail link was severed in 1972 by Tropical Storm Agnes, Glen Rock survived to become a quiet residential community. Today the railroad that once ensured Glen Rock's existence continues to help the town with tourists, cyclists, and joggers as part of the York County Heritage Rail Trail. Through vintage images, Around Glen Rock chronicles this region's evolution while paying tribute to its roots.
