Center for Community Engagement

A place to convene

Built in 1839, the historic Philip Small House was home to the Lafayette Club for more than a century. Once a members-only club for local businessmen, many important decisions and deals were made within the walls of 59 East Market Street throughout history.

Made possible by a generous donation from Louis J. Appell Jr, York College has once again opened the doors of this historic landmark. The home for the Center for Community Engagement's offices, this downtown venue will be a place for students and faculty to come together with community leaders from across York County to continue the tradition of collaborating for the greater good of York's future.
