"Early settlers were also attracted to the vicinity of Yocumtown because of the water power of
Fishing Creek. Along its banks, they built fulling mills that carded wool for area farmers,
woolen cloth mills, and grist mills. By the mid-1820s, the village of Yocumtown had established
itself with a log schoolhouse, a blacksmith shop, and a tannery.
Thomas Mills, in 1814, built the first house where Yocumtown stands. Willian Naylor built a
fulling mill where the wool of the region was carded just south of Yocumtown in 1765. The
turnpike between York and Harrisburg was completed in the early 1800’s, there were two
competing stage lines. The cost one way was 50 cents and it included a good meal. An
important stopping place for exchange horse was at Henry’s Etter’s tavern. He secured
establishment of a post office in his tavern in 1838." Etters is the name of the post office in
Goldsboro, even though there is no incorporated place known as "Etters". But even USPS
interchanges 17319 as Etters and Goldsboro. Also, Yocumtown and Valley Green areas are
often called Etters.
