Did you know?

Did you know that the Town of Clear Spring has its own seal?

Justin Ebersole designed it when he was in the eighth grade at Clear Spring Middle School.

It features a scenic view of the old National Pike, Plumb Grove, the Log House Museum and the oldest church in Clear Spring, St. Andrew's.
