225 Center Street Meyersdale, PA
"Summit of the potbellied Stove"
at the SHIPLEY HARDWARE Building
- now Home of the Meyersdale Mall -
Did you know ...
that it was actually around a potbellied stove of the
Shipley Hardware Company Store 60 years ago,
that plans were made which have succeeded in launching Meyersdale into a position of international renown as
"Maple City, USA" ?
On that night a group of farseeing men had a vision:
A celebration, a festival in Meyersdale to promote the sweetest of all Pennsylvania's commodities,
our own Somerset County maple syrup, a Maple Festival - and that vision, that dream, became a reality.
Now the Shipley Hardware Company Store has become Home of the Meyersdale Mall !
(from: "Pennsylvania Maple Festival History")
The SHIPLEY HARDWARE Building where the Pennsylvania Maple Festival
was conceived: now Home of the Meyersdale Mall !
