MEMORY JOGGER



To help McConnellsburg celebrate its 100th anniversary in 1886, residents of Mercersburg filled two wagons pulled by a steam engine to bring people to McConnellsburg. The big event with a parade, ox roast sandwiches and fireworks attracted an estimated 6,000- 8,000 visitors. This photo is submitted by the Fulton County Historical Society in recognition of the current 225th anniversary of the town.
