This week’s Tour Through Time takes a look at two images, one of the Letort Creek flooding over Pomfret Street and another of the Old Town Mill in Carlisle.
The mill was midway between the Letort and Spring Garden Streets. There is now a small business mall located there, next to Letort Park. A mill race used to run across what is now Letort Park. It went to the mill and then ran parallel to Pomfret Street and emptied back into the Letort on the south side of the bridge on East Pomfret Street.
Tour Through Time will run Saturdays in The Sentinel as a joint project with the Cumberland County Historical Society. Sentinel photographer Michael Bupp will work with staff at the Historical Society each week to offer a look at Carlisle and the surrounding area through the years.
Please contact the Cumberland County Historical Society at 717-249-7610 with any information pertaining to these images. Please send future ideas or suggestions to email@example.com.
