Coulter and Hepler Land Records
Description
The Coulter and Hepler Land Records contain property records for land in southeastern Lancaster County that once belonged to the Reids, Coulters, and Heplers. The records include deeds, land drafts, and articles of agreement. There is also a desk blotter for I. P. Hepler.
Admin/Biographical History
Walter R. and Esther E. Hepler (parents of donor) purchased a farm from R. M. Coulter in 1929. The farm was located in Bart Twp. and Colerain Twp. with an address of 113 Rosedale Road, Quarryville. In the early 1930s, Walter was injured in a farm accident and the family had to sell the farm in a sheriff's sale. They subsequently lived with Esther's parents and helped on their farm, earning 50¢ per week plus meals and shelter. Somehow, Walter was able to keep the family's truck through these difficult times.
He later was employed as manager at the Capital Theatre in Lancaster where he earned $14.75 per week. He moved the family into a three-story house in Lancaster with indoor plumbing and electricity, which was an exciting change for the children-James and his sister, Dorothy. As the U.S. emerged from the Depression and entered World War II, Walter used his carpentry skills to obtain a position in the shipyards and earned $2.37½ per day. James Hepler retired from Trojan Yachts as a boat-builder.

Summary
This article concerns a house built in 1790 by Martin Barr in Quarryville, PA. "...the old structure to which I ask your brief attention commands interest and has the charm of novelty. Situated in the northern end of the borough of Quarryville, perched on a slight hill, stands a large stone building, known for many years as 'The Ark', and the hill on which it stands as 'Mount Ararat.' These names, it is said, were given by a noted wag of his day, named Longenecker, soon after the house was built."
Notes
"Between 140-150 N Church Street, Quarryville, PA 17566. The Ark is an old stone building that remains one of the most intriguing structures in the Southern End of Lancaster County. This mansion, erected in 1791 by Martin Barr, was one of several buildings that he built around that time period and still stands today on Mount Ararat. The house was centrally located on the property owned by Martin Barr at the time. The structure was made mostly of strong walnut wood; the walls were twenty-four inches thick and a hallway twelve feet wide! The Ark was in existence before Quarryville came to be and the area was instead known as Barrs Quarries until 1833. Abram Barr inherited the Ark after Martin Barr passed away. Many years later after the grandchildren of Martin Barr died off the estate was divided and sold. The Ark was bought and became Hotel Quarryville."
