“President’s Message”

 

I am delighted to introduce the 2018 version of the Arts Council Summer Calendar. One thing that I would like you to notice is that the entire volume is in color. In addition to the Art’s Council members I’d like to thank our advertisers. You will also notice that copies of the calendar are at various strategic locations in the community which is seen as a more equitable distribution format. Finally, if you are unable to get a paper copy, I urge you to access mtgretna.com site. My best wishes for a relaxing and rejuvenating summer.

Introduction to Mount Gretna

If you are visiting Mt. Gretna for the first time, you will find a special community.

Throughout the summer, cultural activities flourish. Despite its small geographic area, Mt. Gretna has six distinct areas with their own governing bodies: Pa Chautauqua, Mt. Gretna Campmeeting Association, Stoberdale, Mt. Gretna Heights, Conewago Hill, and Timber Hills.

Pennsylvania Chautauqua

Since the Pennsylvania Chautauqua’s founding in 1892, its summer activities have been an integral part of Mount Gretna summers.  In keeping with its Mission to promote a program of the arts, religion, culture and recreation, the Pennsylvania Chautauqua offers a wide variety of summer activities

Mt. Gretna Campmeeting Association

The Mt. Gretna Campmeeting Association originated in 1892 as a tent site. The tents were replaced by closely packed “gingerbread” style cottages. The meeting area became the site for the Tabernacle which is the focus point for the summers activities. Today, many of the homes in the Campmeeting section of Mt. Gretna retain the heritage and appearance of the original cottages of a hundred years ago.

Stoberdale

At the Boulevard Avenue entrance, the Heights’ north end, is another tiny section of Mt. Gretna called Stoberdale, location of about a dozen homes, the Fire Company, and the Hide-A-Way Restaurant. Stoberdale may contain examples of Gretna’s largest and smallest homes, literally almost side-by-side, and two small hidden ponds.

 

Mt. Gretna Heights

After the turn of the century, Abraham Kauffman purchased a tract of land to the east of the Campmeeting Association.  He established a commercial-resort complex, including a general store, a three-story hotel, an icehouse, and a small mansion. Additional lands to the east were purchased and developed into residential cottages. Today, the former “Kauffman Heights” residential area is known as “The Heights.”

Conewago Hill

In 1909 the majestic, five-story, 125 room, Conewago Hotel was built on the western slope overlooking Mt. Gretna’s Lake Conewago. Unfortunately, the stock market crash of October 1929, and the ensuing depression that lasted through World War II, led to the closing of the Conewago Hotel. Today, the hotel grounds are now the site of the lovely Conewago Hills residential homes, and many of these homes enjoy that same gorgeous view of the Lake.

Timber Hills

North of the Conewago Lake is a tract of land once used by the Pennsylvania National Guard for summer military exercises, and for mobilization of Pennsylvania forces starting with the Spanish American War in 1898. Today it is the site for residential homes, and the Timbers Dinner Theater sits on the spot formerly occupied by the Commanding General of the 28th Division and his staff.
