Description

These cards show different scenes of the Conococheague Creek that runs through and along the edge of Wilson College Campus.
Conococheague is a Lenape word and translates as “Water of many turns.” This tributary of the Potomac rises in Northwestern Adams County, in the South Mountain range and flows through Caledonia State Park, where it turns northwest toward Scotland, PA before turning south toward Wilson College. In Chambersburg, it then turns south toward Greencastle before eventually making its way to the Potomac.
