Brunner Island, PA

I grew up along the southern Susquehanna in a small town called, York Haven. On the island (Brunner’s Island) formed by the Conewago Creek and the Susquehanna was the remains of a reputed Susquehannock Indian village as evidenced by the many artifacts uncovered over time, as well as during the construction of PP&Ls coal-fired electric generation plant on the island in the late 1950s/early 1960s. Arrow heads, complete battle axes, etc, were found by anyone who wanted to take the time to look. Attending school in York county, I, too, never recall studying the tribe.
