Mr. Myers commissioned the architectural firm of Hamme and Leber to construct the additions. Meadowbrook was one of the first major projects for John Bentz Hamme and Edward Leber, who started the firm just one year earlier here in York. Both men originally worked for J.A. Dempwolf, a York architect whose work includes York Central Market and Courthouse. Even with the additions, the Myers family only used Meadowbrook as a summer home. Until his marriage to Anna Iaeger in 1880, Mr. Myers had been a resident of York. He was an enterprising businessman with primary interests in tobacco, including wholesale leaf, cigars and cigar box manufacturing. In addition, he was Vice President of the York Valley Lime Company and served on the Board of Directors of York Telephone and City Bank of York. The Stauffer Family, York County Natives and Owners of the Christmas Tree Hill gift stores, purchased the property including the Meadowbrook Mansion in 1993. Today, reminders of Meadowbrook remain from the six colossal columns which frame the entrance portico of the front porch to the brass lighting, that still light The East Room on the first floor. Meadowbrook is a true piece of local history. We here at Christmas Tree Hill have enchanted the timeless beauty of this magnificent Mansion with home decor and furnishings to give that same feeling to your home.
