The building which houses the York County Heritage Trust was built in 1921 as the J. W. Richley Auto Company. Today, the structure is better known as the Historical Society Museum, housing over 10,000 sq. ft. of exhibitions. The original checkered showroom floor is still present, as is a beautiful two-story entrance hall.
