Throughout York’s history agriculture has endured as one of the leading industries. In the city as manufacturing and industry grew during the late 1800s, local entrepreneur A.B. Farquhar built a large factory complex that produced a variety of farm implements and tools, from steam engines and threshers, to hit and miss engines and plows. Since York’s establishment in 1741 agricultural has endured has one of the leading industries for York County. In the City as manufacturing and industry grew during the late 1800s, local entrepreneur A.B. Farquhar built a large factory complex that produced a variety of farm implements and tools, from steam engines and threshers, to hit and miss engines and plows. The name “Farquhar” is still seen all over York, and at its height, Farquhar’s business achieved international fame. The complex, seen here around 1885 was located near Duke, George, Court and Gay streets, taking up nearly a full city block. The complex was demolished in the early 1960s after the York factory ceased operation in the 1950s.

York Safe & Lock Co. Nos. 1 & 2 (MP 56.6)

Perhaps one of the best examples of the success, ingenuity, and perseverance of York’s local manufacturing industry was the York Plan. Prior to and during World War II, the York Plan was a local effort spearheaded by S. Forry Laucks of the York Safe and Lock Co., to convert local industry production to military items. The success was unprecedented and as a result the United States Government studied the York approach and tried to implement in other locations across the country, hence the ‘York Plan.’
