Every Sunday night a small group of locals, six to 10 of us including myself, gather at The Swope Manor Bed & Breakfast for an evening of fellowship, fun, laughs and most important of all exquisite food.

Located at 60 York St., within the first block of Lincoln Square, George Swope purchased the property in 1836 and built the current brick structure you see today. Prior to this, the first structure built on this lot was a log home in 1793 by the town’s founder and namesake James Gettys.
