Historical Context of Trindle Spring Lutheran Church

This webpage will function as a digital exhibition for the findings of the 2014 archaeological season at Trindle Spring Lutheran Church along with an analysis of the evidence pertaining to the origins of the church. Starting with William Trindle, early settler in the Cumberland County area, the exhibition will flow from the Trindle family to their relationship with the land. In land tract acquisitions, eventually Trindle Spring Lutheran Church comes to possess a space for a cemetery and a church. After the congregation is established, the church sees various leaders and buildings in its time along with the ultimate foundation of present-day Mechanicsburg.
