Bucks County Historical Society waits for decision on railroad sale

The 128-year-old Stewartstown Railroad is a southern York County, Pennsylvania, landmark in the small town for which it is named. It is also at the heart of a $350,000 property dispute. The railroad's foreclosure is likely if the debt to the estate of a deceased private lender, who made the Bucks County Historical Society a beneficiary, goes unpaid.

Allentown's proposed ice arena displaces local day-care

To avoid the process of eminent domain, the owner of the building that houses the New Generation Learning Center in Allentown, Pennsylvania, has agreed to let the city buy her property for a negotiated price.
