  It's interesting how we seldom think twice about the town where we live. We wake up, go to work, come home, shop and do a myriad other things without paying much notice. I'm a Realtor living in Quarryville Pennsylvania located in the southern part of Lancaster county. The natives predictably refer to the area as "The Southern End". The town itself is typical small town Americana. There are no particular landmarks that jump out and grab your attention. The area surrounding it is rural with considerable farm land. I've lived here for forty-two years. I raised my family here, worked here, attend church here and keep up on happenings but seldom really think about it. I've had occasion to travel in my business career and have a whole list of towns and cities around the country that I think...

As a Quarryville Realtor, I am a loyal customer of "Fergie's". I thought I might share a bit of their history and philosophy. A philosophy that I think makes them a great place to do business with. It was 1916, the year that E. E. Ferguson and George W. Hassler, Sr. opened a business that still remains a focal point in the southern end of Lancaster County today.  Ferguson and Hassler's, or "Fergie's as it is more familiarly known, has evolved over the years into a large supermarket, but is still under the ownership of one of the original families. When Ferguson and Hassler first opened their general store on Quarryville's State Street, their merchandise included hardware, clothing, shoes, furniture, appliances, fabrics and sewing supplies, as well as other items, in addition to grocerie...

  Since I'm a Quarryville Realtor and have seen the now flooded quarries that sit not far from my house the name of the town has always seemed self evident. But there is a bit of history behind it. Abram Barr, son of Martin Barr, who built the “Ark” that I mentioned in a previous blog first recognized the important fact that Quarryville marked the lower limit of the limestone in Lancaster county. The less fertile land of the “Lower End” lacked a necessary element, lime. Barr quarried the limestone that was burned in stone kilns into lime with the then abundant chestnut timber.   In 1825 Abram Barr laid out about twenty acres in lots of one-eighth of an acre each and these he sold to farmers to take out stone for their own use. They did this in the winter after all their other work was d...
