Rock Springs Park Attracts Folks from Western PA for the First Time in 40 Years

Last night I had my first signing at a major book store chain. I was at Barnes and Noble in Greensburg, PA, signing books and talking to folks about "chicken and waffles" (Rock Springs Park's signature dish/Pennsylvania Dutch treat), the Idlewild andMacdonald connection, and the fact that people from nearby Irwin, PA, made train excursions to the park in 1910 for fares under $2 a person. It was great to share Rock Springs Park's history with people in the area and to hear their stories of working in Rock Springs' sister park, Idlewild Park in Ligonier. Images of America: Rock Springs Park will now be available at the Greensburg store, including a number of signed copies.
