Notes
Excerpt: "It has recently occurred to me that...the Historical Society of the Cocalico Valley has owned the historic Connell Mansion...for fifty-six years. During those fifty-six years little has been written or published about the history of the grand gray-painted three-story brick Italianate home...Who were Moore and Rebecca (Konigmacher) Connell, who built the Italianate mansion in 1868 and whose family occupied it for two generations until 1961?There is absolutely no question in my mind that at the time the Connells built their house it was unique in its rural Lancaster County setting and a showplace in the sleepy farm village of Ephrata."

Summary
"In addition to offering a biography of Harry Franklin Stauffer [1896-1982] the journal traces his printing career which began in 1915 when he was employed with Silas Bard's Denver Press. In later years Stauffer operated the print shop of Weaver's Book Store, Lancaster. Following his retirement from Weaver's he established a private press-the "Conestoga Press"- for the purpose of demonstrating the art of printing at the Kutztown Folk Festival. The journal also records the restoration of the historic Ephrata press at the historic Ephrata Cloister." [from the Journal of the Historical Society Of The Cocalico Valley]
