"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.
