The suburb of East York was developed in 1903 with the foresight that industrial expansion would attract a great increase in population. John H. Longstreet's vision foresaw the pathway of expansion.
Many beautiful homes were soon built and more building lots awaited new owners.
Known to many as the Keesey Tract, the East York area was listed as "fronting, for two-thirds of a mile, on both sides of Market Street, York’s main thoroughfare, and part of the Great Lincoln Highway." Only an eleven-minute ride from Center Square in York, it featured high ground with perfect natural drainage, cement walks and curbs, macadamized streets, pure filtered water, electric lights, and a complete sewer system.
The York Railways Company lines ran the entire length of Market Street through the center of the tract and to adjoining boroughs. For a single carfare, one could ride the entire length of Market Street.
