Town Tours & Village Walks: Ludwig's Corner

Thursday, June 20, 2019

Around 1811 when Jacob Ludwick, Sr. bought shares in the 17.5 mile "Little Conestoga Turnpike" road venture, he also purchased 14 acres along the road from his son-in-law, Henry Miller. There he built a tavern and coach stand which he named the Captain Lawrence. Locals called it "The Bucket of Blood." His daughter, Hannah Ludwick (1797-1873), and son, Jacob Ludwick, Jr. (1799-1868), continued there. At the intersection of today's Conestoga Road and St. Andrew's Lane, a small commercial hamlet grew, with church and school, witnessing and adding to the changing winds of history in West Vincent Township. A nearly "walkless" tour will be held at St. Andrews Church with driving maps to help you further explore on your own. Overflow parking is available at the rear of the Ludwig's Village Shoppes, 2904 Conestoga Rd, Glenmoore.
