IT’LL GO DOWN IN HISTORY. We’ve all heard the saying many times. But in Lancaster, it’s our history that keeps us pumped up. And though much of this history “Happened on the Square,” our central brick hub has taken on a different shape ­— that of a heart. A sentient one that has always beaten strong as Lancaster’s core of remarkable events, eminent figures, and life-changing moments. Penn Square has launched hot air balloons, political campaigns, civil rights initiatives, a ground-breaking Native American treaty, and yes, even an empire. Curious? Launch into this issue of Fig® and drink it all in. Literally. Our historic taverns are well covered, too. And between these covers, Fig® is proud to partner with LancasterHistory.org to share all of these narratives. And so many more. Noteworthy, most definitely. And more than worthy of our deeper exploration, understanding and appreciation. We all know intuitively — and in our hearts — that Lancaster is a singular place, yet one overflowing with innumerable historical distinctions. Read on, and add your mind to the mix. After all, history is anything but one-dimensional. And never, ever square. Enjoy! Deborah Brandt, Editor

IN LANCASTER CITY, OUR SQUARE TAKES THE SHAPE OF A HEART. More than three centuries of Lancaster’s heritage have both unraveled and evolved on and around Penn Square, the heart of a city’s remarkable history that continues to beat today. This lifeblood of Lancaster flows back through a compelling network of veins and arteries. For example, the Lancaster County Courthouse — when first built — was on Penn Square, the same square that Lancaster notables Thaddeus Stevens, James Buchannan and Jasper Yeates could see easily from their offices. And here we find Central Market, the oldest continually-operating, municipally-owned farmers’ market in the country.

Simple, perpendicular lines make a square. But an infinitely more riveting angle on Lancaster’s unique history has been formed on these foundations ­— and so many more memorable moments.

(Six Nations) and the colonies of Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia met in Lancaster — a young town still surrounded by wild and wet areas — the future of the entire country was to be impacted. At a time when little was known about how vast our continent was, these negotiations expanded the territorial claims of the colonies from “sea to sea.” The Pacific Ocean was now within reach; it was perceived as the new western boundary of the country.

That’s the short time that Lancaster County had been carved out of the Pennsylvania frontier before it was given a great honor — the hosting of the Treaty of Lancaster. A treaty may sound simple. An agreement and the signing of some papers, perhaps. But when Native American representatives of the Iroquois Confederacy

From June 22 to July 4, 1744, not long after Lancaster had sprouted from a swampy hollow to the county seat, it proved to be the perfect place for the meeting. Lancaster was a relatively civilized town, though close to unsettled regions, and organizers could offer comfortable accommodations and easy connections for their colonial visitors. Uncannily, nearly 300 years later, this location hosts Lancaster County’s Convention Center, one of our city’s most inviting and hospitable hot spots. The area around the square was also a natural setting for the Iroquois confederacy. As delegations settled into taverns, it is believed that the Indians set up camp near present-day Mulberry and Walnut Streets. There, Roaring Brook and its many springs — now fittingly called Water Street — bubbled to the surface. As a result of the treaty, what also rose to the surface — and far above it — was our little frontier town. Some of the most prominent statesmen and orators of the day, as well as Iroquois Confederacy representatives, met to mend a fence — ­ and to tear one down. The previous year had seen a number of clashes between colonists and Indians, differences that the treaty addressed as alliances were strengthened and friends were forged.

But what a day it was. During the revolution, for 24 long hours, Lancaster became the capital of our nascent nation. It was September of 1777, and the delegates of the Continental Congress were about to lose their heads in Philadelphia. British forces were moving ever closer to their meeting place, the capital of the colonies, to carry out the bounties set by King George. The revolutionaries decided to flee to nearby Lancaster. At the same time, thousands of soldiers and prisoners of war were already being housed here, straining the city’s resources. But our forefathers were resourceful — and they proved that a lot can happen in just one day. On Saturday, September 27, 1777, about thirty Continental Congress delegates met at the courthouse in Centre Square (Penn Square). They made two resolutions. First, The Board of War was to cooperate with George Washington to raise more firearms, shoes, blankets, stockings, provisions and other necessaries or the army. Second their retreat was to continue west, across the Susquehanna River. It was a short meeting. But a long and memorable moment in Lancaster’s history.

THE BULL’S HEAD INN

Tavern Life and Cosmopolitan Influence in a Country Town. here’s to lancaster!

Like every other American city, village, and country crossroad in the early eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, Lancaster had its fair share of taverns. Perched on stools and gathered at tables, the townspeople not only drank up ale, but drank in all of the latest developments in commerce and society. Jacob Eichholtz (1776-1842) was no exception. During the lifetime of Lancaster’s most prolific portrait painter, more than 70 taverns were open for business. In fact, Eichholtz’s parents, Leonard and Catharine, kept one of Lancaster’s largest and most prominent: The Bull’s Head. On the southeast corner of East King and South Christian Streets within eyesight of the seat of Commonwealth government from 1799-1812, The Bull’s Head hosted politicians, business

people, travelers, and the local citizenry. More than rest, sustenance, and hospitality, The Bull’s Head was a hub for brokering commercial deals, debating political issues, and learning the latest regional, national, and international news. And, of course, for finding entertainment.

The Bull’s Head was also a home. It was the place where Leonard and Catherine Eichholtz raised fourteen children, employing them in the work of the family and exposing them to a world of ideas that stretched far beyond the boundaries of this inland market town. Their son, Jacob, grasped the advantages offered by exposure to cosmopolitan ideas and charted a pathway of artistic, commercial, and social accomplishment in early America. Although no one is raising children in any of the many well-regarded drinking establishments on and around Penn Square today, you can certainly find politics, news, and entertainment being shared by locals on any given evening in Downtown Lancaster. So go ahead, raise your glass to history.


BALLOON RIDES & A BARTERING WIFE

A pioneering balloonist launches his hot air balloons from Penn Square. blasts sound from above.

Dogs bark or cower under beds. People point toward the sky in awe. These were the typical reactions when a hot air balloon glided overhead across the county in years past. In 1869, a balloon ascension arroused quite a bit of curiousity.

On one day — September 18, 1869 — the world of Lancaster was very much around, gathered at the Centre Square. There, Wise was supervising workers to inflate a massive balloon. Only this time, John did not go skyward. The scene was described in the Lancaster Evening Express: “A large crowd had congregated in Centre Square and vicinity — estimated at about six thousand people. The windows, balconies, roofs of all dwellings were crowded. The ladies added lustre to the scene.” When the balloon’s pilot climbed into the basket, it was not John, but his son, Charles.

As husband and wife set aloft, Charles gave Louisa the “flag to wave,” most probably the same flag currently on exhibit at LancasterHistory.org.

BALLOON

As early as 1835, Lancastrian John Wise was doing exactly this, launching his hot air balloons from Penn Square and landing worldwide fame as an aeronautical engineer. He made the first-ever Air Mail delivery for the U.S. Postal Service in 1859 and was even mentioned by science fiction author Jules Verne in his novel, “Clipper of the Clouds.” And just like Jules Verne’s “Around the World in 80 Days”, Wise held hopes of a transatlantic balloon flight.

One woman added the most “lustre” to the scene. Louisa Wise, Charles’ wife, stunned the crowd by joining her husband in the balloon to float over Lancaster. There were many other bidders for the seat, however — and plenty who offered large sums of money for the privilege. But Louisa prevailed. As she was quoted in the Lancaster Evening Express: “I resolved to be the highest bidder... though it should be a thousand dollars.” Charles told his wife of two men who had offered $50 each for the trip. “I told him mine was a hundred dollars,” Louisa retorted, “paid in advance, by numerous charges against him for darning socks and sewing on his buttons for ten years past. He but said, ‘all right, you shall go.’ ”

A FIVE & DIME EMPIRE

In 1879, Franklin Winfield Woolworth opened his first successful “Five and Dime” store on the square and a retail empire was born. what do the holy romans,

5 100

the Ottomans, and Star Wars all have in common? Empires. And if you live in Lancaster, you should add Woolworth to the list. When F.W. Woolworth opened the doors to his 5-cent store on June 21, 1879, he unknowingly opened the door to his own empire, one whose humble beginnings can be pinpointed to a fourteen-foot storefront just steps off Penn Square. Woolworth’s own beginnings were on a small family farm in New York. But he aspired to much more than the agrarian — to make his

10¢ mark in the business world. His big break came when William Moore, co-owner of the Augsbury & Moore Dry Goods store, offered to let the young entrepreneur learn the trade and work in his store for a three-month trial. For no pay. His work was quickly deemed satisfactory, and he was hired at $3.50 a week. A few years later, Moore suggested that Woolworth spruce up the store. Always enterprising, Woolworth finished the task and went on to request another opportunity: to promote goods that had not been selling.

VIII

it happened on the square

lancasterhistory.org

Using the only space available — a sewing table — Woolworth arranged the goods with a modest price card: “Any article 5¢.” By day’s end, two extraordinary things happened. The table was nearly bare and an empire began. Woolworth believed that he could establish an entire store on this seemingly simple premise. And although his first attempt in Utica, New York had failed, he was not dissuaded. Lancaster, he had received word, was the prime location for his new store. Its thriving marketplace, teeming with prudent citizens, would surely embrace his business model. With the backing of Moore and his business partner, Perry R. Smith, Woolworth leased the storefront at 170 North Queen Street. His 5-cent store led to big change, indeed. By 1881, Woolworth’s expanded to become the 5- and 10-cent store. And by 1900, the majestic six-story Woolworth skyscraper in Lancaster became a landmark with its renowned rooftop garden gracing the corner of North Queen and Grant streets. Fifty years later, the store was once again transformed into a beacon of modern elegance. In its prime, the reach of the Woolworth empire was worldwide with more than 2,000 stores. Like all mighty empires, this one could not combat the advances of time. But, for over a century, Lancaster was recognized the world-over for where it all began.

It was September 16, 1960, a warm morning in Lancaster. By 7:30 AM, the first person had already arrived at Penn Square and two ‘Vote for Nixon’ balloons that had appeared near the speakers’ stand were quickly dispatched with cigarettes. Sidewalks swarmed with people and the parking at the Hager lot was “a madhouse.” Twenty-seven policemen patrolled the square and thirty-three more were compelled to protect downtown banks from opportunistic robbers. And there were still 4 ½ hours to go before an aspiring Presidential candidate was scheduled to deliver his campaign speech. When Senator John F. Kennedy’s 28-car procession arrived, making its way up

lancasterhistory.org

King Street half an hour late, the crowd had grown to 7,500 eager onlookers. They pressed toward the square, and the Lancaster Band, serenading the crowd, had to make a hasty retreat. Scores of people watched from rooftops. The windows of the business establishments that surrounded the square were lined with workers. A few stood on open ledges. Many draped themselves on the monument in the center of the square. Near the speaker’s platform, the “Kennedy Girls,” dressed in red-and-white or blue-andwhite, cheered and squealed and handed out campaign literature to the crowd. A less star-struck reporter wrote that “his tanned face appeared older and more deeply lined close up than in photographs and on television.” Flashing his famous Kennedy grin, the candidate waved from the back seat of an open convertible. And despite a police escort to and from the platform, he made sure to greet and shake hands with the crowd. Policemen were jostled by the hard press of admirers who pushed forward for a closer look, and as the Senator’s car was pulling away from the square en route to more speeches in Columbia, York and Baltimore, a woman was tripped up by the crowd. Miss Helen Fritsch, 64, of 763 Marietta Avenue fell into the street. Kennedy saw her being carried into the lobby of the Fulton Bank and immediately left his car to follow her. Inside the bank, as she was given first aid, he apologized to her. But Miss Fritsch was quick to assure the handsome candidate that she did not believe the fall to be his fault. Nonetheless, he made certain that she was attended to before heading to his next speech, perhaps a half an hour late.

THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT

Peaceful protests in the square from the local NAACP led to the integration of the sales staff at the Watt & Shand and Hager Department Stores. when dr. martin luther

King, jr. gave his “I have a dream” speech on August 28, 1963, in Washington D.C., Lancaster was there. A two-busload contingent, whose members earlier that summer had participated in their own non-violent civil rights protests in and around Lancaster City, had no designs of missing this vital turning point in the Civil Rights Movement. But first, members of the Lancaster chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, Bethel AME, and other concerned citizens marched right here in Lancaster. They had long noticed something

— the absence of black sales clerks in the city’s department stores, most notably Watt & Shand and Hager. Although the NAACP had been established in Lancaster since 1923, the group had remained fairly inactive for nearly four decades after its founding. This all changed in July of 1963 when the group elected a new president, Kenneth Bost. He made a bold vow to “turn over every stone of segregation in Lancaster County” and started with the July 19 protest march and boycott of city department stores. After two more days of marching, management at both Watt & Shand and Hager sat down with protest leaders and promised good faith in future hires. Meanwhile, the first black sales clerks were hired at JCPenneys and Garvins. In less than a week, a protest in the middle of Lancaster’s geographic and economic heart had brought the nation’s struggle for equality for all people to the forefront of every Lancastrian’s mind.

A HISTORY OF FRESH, LOCAL THINKING. The buy local message seems to be popping up everywhere. From morning talk shows to political protests to Twitter, this topic is trendy — and for good reason. It creates jobs, is better for the environment, and builds a spirit of community and connection among neighbors. At Lancaster Central Market, buying locally is more than a trend; it’s been a way of life since 1730. Central Market is the longest continually operating farmers market in America — we don’t take tradition lightly here. For generations, Lancaster natives have been coming to Central Market for traditional Pennsylvania German treats, fresh farm produce, and the familiar faces of stand owners. Meet us at Market—a piece of living history.

Lancaster’s proud history of brewing

IN THE MID-19TH CENTURY, the City of Lancaster was known throughout the Union as a hotbed for brewing, producing as much as seven percent of all beer consumed in the country. English ale gave way to lagers, a beer style that was introduced by the influx of German immigrants to the area. At its height, Lancaster boasted 14 breweries, earning the title as America’s “Little Munich.” That number began to slowly dwindle during World War I and the Prohibition years, and after the last remaining Lancaster-based brewery closed its doors in 1956, a 39-year beer-brewing drought ensued. That is, until Lancaster Malt Brewing went into operation in 1995 in the historic Edward McGovern Tobacco Warehouse, the site where Lancaster Brewing Company exists today. The large red brick building on the corner of Walnut and Plum stands as both a beacon of quality beer for today and as a reminder of Lancaster’s proud brewing heritage. Cheers!

TOURS EVERY WEEKEND AT 3PM. Stop in for a brewery tour and learn about the different styles of beer. Arrive early for lunch or stay for dinner.

CELEBRATING OLD AND NEW In the late 1910s, Lancaster native Charles Demuth pioneered a new style of art that blended his distinctively accurate powers of observation with the strong, angular shapes and abstractions of cubism. His legacy lives on in today’s local artists — artists who do more than push paint around on canvases. They push boundaries. Art is a journey and an exploration. It can connect us to the traditions and crafts of a the past or question the status quo. Don’t believe us? Just take a leisurely springtime walk down Gallery Row, where a different kind of beauty is budding.

Honoring the rich cultural history of his native city, Freiman finds a wellspring of inspiration in Lancaster. Vintage maps, architectural details, and geometric quilt patterns are used to create highly original works of art in a variety of media.

Known for her bright poppies, Christiane inspires us with images of landscapes, animals, portraits and florals. Christiane’s work will inspire you with her vibrant colors in oil, acrylic & watercolor or even a piece commissioned to match your vision.

authentic: TONY HAVERSTICK

JEREMY HESS PHOTOGRAPHERS / JH

IN THE AGE OF E-READERS AND PAPERLESS MOVEMENTS, Tony Haverstick is proud to be part of preserving a time when books were a treasured part of the home.

It is here that Haverstick breathes new life into history with precise attention to detail and a genuine respect for authenticity.

“Books are one of the few things from history that you can get your hands on,” says Haverstick as he gingerly turns a page revealing his passion for bookbinding. “It’s nice that people keep books around so we can have a sense of where we were and where we came from.”

Haverstick was trained by renowned Philadelphia bookbinder Fritz Eberhardt, who was commissioned by both Queen Elizabeth and Pope John Paul II to produce original artistic book covers. While bookbinders are in demand throughout the country, Haverstick chose to remain in Lancaster because of its rich printing tradition.

Tucked in a corner alley behind the historic Fulton Theatre, the Water Street Bindery has been an integral part of preserving Lancaster’s past for more than 40 years.

“German printing was very important to Colonial America,” Haverstick recalls. “Places like the Hans Herr House produced German bibles by the thousands.”

Inside Haverstick’s shop, the checkerboard floor is littered with scraps of paper and flecks of gold leaf. Tools of the trade are scattered here and there while imposing cast iron machinery stand strong and await their next assignment. Amidst the clutter are true diamonds in the rough — impeccably restored vintage books.

Keeping the tradition of bookbinding alive while restoring Lancaster’s heritage are the bookends that embrace Haverstick’s enduring enthusiasm for his work. 28 North Water Street, Downtown Lancaster 717.293.1310 waterstreetbindery.com

A HOLISTIC APPROACH TO SAFE MOVEMENT, PROPER ALIGNMENT AND QUALITY OF LIFE.

JOSEPH PILATES ’ VISION Joseph Pilates lived his life to the fullest: learning, creating, practicing and sharing his principles of “Contrology” with his small corner of the world. His backdrop was NYC in the 1920s. He advertised his work on the sidewalk, talking to passersby. He jogged around the block on which he worked and lived. He talked to people who then talked to other people. “Contrology” is now known as Pilates. Joe is now gone but the whole world has heard his name. His principles are as relevant in the 21st century as they were when he taught them. His vision and his legacy live on through the millions that teach and practice his work today. He was an exceptional man with an extraordinary vision: begin with self-awareness, a healthy body, mind and spirit and restore our zest for living. “Joe meant to inform every moving moment in your life. He wanted to change the world.” Mary Bowen, Pilates Elder

EVOLUTION

10 YEARS

A NOTE OF THANKS FROM EPY FOUNDER LISA TAYLOR

JUST TEN SHORT YEARS AGO, I embarked on a journey that would change my life forever. After incorporating yoga into my own life, I set out to introduce the practice to my community by opening a small studio here in Lancaster. With that simple-yet-focused intention, Evolution Power Yoga has helped create an incredible local yoga community that continues to impress me day after day. After ten years of growth and hard work, I am honored to be a part of an inspiring movement of transformation and change that is now empowering people as far away as Kenya and as close to home as our own backyard. When our first location opened in 2002, I, as a teacher, was a lot like my students practicing for the first time — curious and willing, but unaware of all that yoga had to offer. I was excited about each new student, yet humbled by the growing pains of having classes where simply no one showed up. But as I continued to invest in my own personal journey and training, I saw my students begin to blossom before my eyes. We soon outgrew our first space, and as we transitioned into our next location — and the next one after that — together we began to explore the boundaries of what was possible. Over the years, I have watched people who came to us feeling powerless and ready to give up find the support they needed to create happy, abundant lives they never dreamed were possible.

I’ve seen women become the role models they wanted to be for themselves and for their children, and watched men find the power in compassion and the strength in vulnerability. Year after year, I’ve witnessed people taking a chance on themselves to be limitless — and the results have been astounding. Every day I see how Evolution Power Yoga teachers and students have affected the fabric of Lancaster by becoming leaders in both thought and action. From business owners and CEOs, to parents, grandparents, and college students, each person in our community has the ability to make a difference. They know that true power comes from lifting those around them up, rather than putting them down, and that together, we can create a more peaceful, generous world. As we move on to our next 10 years, I invite you to become a part of what makes Evolution Power Yoga so inspirational. Stop by our anniversary party on May 4th, and stay for the weekend to learn how to tap into the leader that lies within you. It is only by taking a chance on yourself that you can realize the fullest potential of what you have to offer, and we are committed to offering the tools to support you on your journey. The Highest in Me honors and salutes the Highest in You. Namaste, Lisa Taylor
