Welcome to Colonial Park ...

Although we found mention of Colonial Park during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Colonial Park was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it's a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..

While we are confident that Colonial Park was located in Lancaster County, we don't know its actual location within the county.

We've added Colonial Park to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Colonial Park - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Colonial Park, please Contact Us.

Time Zone: The area where we believe that Colonial Park might be (or was) located is in the Eastern Time Zone (EST/EDT) and observes daylight saving time

We believe that Colonial Park would be found within the (717) area code.

Footnotes ...

<1>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went north past Colonial Park and then turned west". While Colonial Park could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Colonial Park as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places (or areas) where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. For example, you might hear somebody say that they are going over to Bird Creek to see Pete ... Bird Creek is just a gas station and a couple of homes at the crossroads. While it might not be on the map, everybody in the area knows it by that name.

Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, several families clustered in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc. The community might still exist, is now gone or only existed for just a short period of time.

Also keep in mind that Colonial Park could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong county. Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community - we're working to straighten it all out.
