Editor’s Note: Planted in April 1998, this European hornbeam was the first tree planted as part of the McConnellsburg Main Street Program’s streetscape improvement project along a two-block stretch of Lincoln Way in the downtown. The hornbeam was purchased by the McConnellsburg Woman’s Club and donated to the project, and the cost of planting the tree was underwritten by The Fulton Co. National Bank & Trust Co. McConnellsburg Borough was one of several downtown property owners that agreed to participate in the project. 6p1.jpg
