The PA Dutch culture is pervasive in Lancaster County. Did you notice?

  • You may wonder why Lank-iss-tur is pronounced that way by locals.

  • You may be a descendant yourself. Just look at your surname. Stoltzfus? Martin? King? Dead-ringers.

  • You may be a different kind of immigrant or outsider wondering why it’s tough to break into Lancaster County culture.

  • Why did Germans settle these fertile lands?

  • Who are the PA Dutch now?

  • And what, pray tell, is in scrapple?

Join us as we consider together who these dreamers were. As usual, expect Square One Coffee and some really aromatic and tasty dutchie fare.

Chust Yous Wait, Nah!
