I took this photo while traveling
in the 18-wheeler with Bill,
on my first trucking adventure.
I love Pennsylvania,
particularly the mountains.
I love the Amish Country
for the obvious respect of
history, tradition, & simplicity.
Gap, Pennsylvania Clock Tower,
Lancaster County, PA.
“The Heart of Amish Country”
The Historical Marker plaque states:
THE GAP CLOCK TOWER
Unique on American Highways,
was erected by the people of Gap in 1892.
It was restored in 1953.
The clock’s face, long telling the time
to passing multitudes on the Newport Road,
Overlooks, at the Gap,
William Penn’s Entrance into Conestoga,
now Lancaster County, in 1701.
