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. The oven in the bakery was from Germany and during World War I, some people refused to buy their bread because the oven had come from Germany. It was called Pound's Bakery and later became Clopper's Market.
