Next I head east just a couple of miles to Biglerville, where it becomes even more evident that this is apple country--there's even a "National Apple Museum". Almost as big as the town itself is what looks like a big apple processing plant. I see a number of Latinos (haven't seen many in other small towns in the county) so I'm guessing orchard work is a draw here for immigrant labour. I ...

This is the typical European town design: the town is built around a central area ...
