#5 – Stoverstown, Pennsylvania

By admin | October 3, 2009

This is a hamlet really just west of York, Pennsylvania, off Route 30 W (Lauck’s Road). I was visiting family there and decided to go over the locally famous healthfood store Sonnewald’s.

The owner of Sonnewalds (German for sunny woods) is a salt-of-the-earth type lady named Willa who will talk to you for half an hour without much prompting about her history (the store is on land that was part of her family’s farm), the store, and her plans for developing empty buildings on the mainstreet of Stoverstown into a restaurant and health center.
