Welcome to Our House for Lit & Art at the Historic York Inn

Our house is in the middle of Beaver Street, at the center of activity for the City of York's First Friday Festivities.

Join us as The Lit and Art Reading Series returns to The Historic York Inn in the Smyser-Bair House for an evening of mansion tours, refreshments, poetry and literary readings, live music, and lively conversation. The event takes place on Friday, October 5 from 6 to 8 p.m.

Featured poetry and fiction readers will include Warren Barrett, CL Bledsoe, Barbara DeCesare, Tracy Diamond, Lucrecia Gurrero, Jerry Holt, and Fernando Quijano III, with live music by Robin Chadderton and original art by Manzar. Eric D. Goodman and Nitin Jagdish curate and host. 

Tours will be offered on the hour by Birkshire Hathaway: step back in time for a tour through history, with hand-carved, gilded Pier mirrors, stained glass, etched glass, hand plasterwork, woodwork, and chandeliers that rival those found in museums. Anchored in York’s historic district since the 1830s, and belonging to the Smyser-Bair family until 1979 (when it was left to the York Historical Trust before becoming a private inn) this home is a rich part of York's history, recently featured in front page news and on national television for its historic charm. 

It's all part of the City of York's First Friday festivities.

See you on October 5 from 6 to 8 p.m. at 30 South Beaver Street, York, PA. On South Beaver Street, once you pass Mason going toward Market, it's the first 1800s mansion on the left.
