One ridge to the west of us, where U.S. 30 and Pa. 655 intersect, is the village of Harrisonville, Pa. Once it was a busy place. Stores bought local produce and sold the necessities. There were small sawmills. There was a school and there were several churches. The local post office moved the mail.  Licking Creek runs through the village on its way to the Potomac River. It powered the mills and offered fishing and swimming. Harrisonville came into being in the early 19th century.
