Did you know?

Did you know that there once was a bakery and ice cream parlor in the town of Clear Spring?

Clarence Pound and his partner, B.H. Beard, opened the bakery in 1916. During World War I, some people refused to buy their bread because the oven at the bakery came from Germany.

It was called Pound's Bakery and later became Clopper's Market.
