Hi, it's Celia again!
The Village of Conestoga was named after the Conestoga Indians that lived near here. And the name Conestoga was given to the wagons that were built here. We are just overflowing with history!
I want to tell you some more about the village. We share our police department with Pequea Township, which is the next township over. There just wasn't enough crime in both townships to have individual departments. I guess that's a good thing. But we have our own police station.
And behind the police station is the fire house. Everyone in Conestoga loves our firemen! Mostly because the do things like this:
And finally, we have one of the best greenhouses in the county. The people there are really nice, and they know a lot about flowers and vegetables. And if you are willing to wait, you can get a really good deal. Mom just got 2 eggplant plants, 2 zucchini plants, 2 pepper plants, and lots of flowers for FREE! Now that's a good deal.
