Editor’s note: This account is reprinted with permission from the October newsletter of the Shippensburg Historical Society. Jake Crider and his family lived at Maclay’s Mill along the Conodoguinet Creek, and he attended The Pine Grove School in the village of Mowersville. Crider attended school there for grades 1-8 and he regularly waxes nostalgic about those days. These memories are a favorite of his and his recollections are vivid. We enjoy reading Crider’s accounts and the memories of others, and hope our readers do, too. The first part of the series was printed on Sept. 13.
