John Harvey House

Built in 1894 for photographer John Harvey (founder of the still-named downtown institution ’Harvey Studio’) and his wife Martha, who continued the business following her husband’s death. Mrs. Harvey pursued many heritage causes including the founding of the York-Sunbury Historical Society, which began with small meetings in her home in 1927.
