Lancaster’s own Gold Klondike along the banks of the Pequea in Herrville

With Uncharted Lancaster’s real-life treasure hunt coming later this spring, I thought you might enjoy some tales of gold and silver just winning to be discovered here in the region. According to the December 29, 1900 edition of the Semi-Weekly New Era in Lancaster gold was discovered in Herrville along the bank of Pequea creek.

See the article below.

Here’s the community of Herrville south of Willow Street.

This isn’t the first mysterious mention of Herrville in a Lancaster newspaper. Thirty years earlier, The Daily Evening Express wrote about a “Subterranean Lake” in the area containing fish “devoid of eyes. The body of water inside had “never been fathomed being beyond the reach of a sounding line.”
