ADAMSTOWN -- The restored stone springhouse on Peter Michael's farm in Frederick County looks much as it did in the days before the Civil War, when runaway slaves are believed to have found shelter there. Michael grew up hearing stories of how his great-grandfather Ezra aided "freedom-seekers" as they fled north along the Underground Railroad, the clandestine network of routes and people helping slaves escape bondage in the early 1800s. But modernity is encroaching on Cooling Springs Farm.

ADAMSTOWN -- Spring dresses up Adamstown to play th part of the perfect small town. Tulips wave in a warm breeze on green lawns. Prim frame houses sport wreaths on front doors and rockers on wooden porches.This crossroads is just the kind of place a visitor can imagine neighbors chatting away a summer evening.But neighbors here aren't always so friendly.It is a town where few people show up for the annual, church-sponsored strawberry festival -- even when the ice cream, music and berries are free.

As a true American, whenever I hear that something is the biggest or the best, it attracts my attention. When I found that the Adamstown-Denver, Pa., area halfway between Reading and Lancaster has at least 2,500 permanent antiques dealers, I was hooked. To further affirm my affinity for the area, this summer USA Today chose it as the nation's premier antiquing location.For many years I have made twice-yearly junkets here. On a nice weekend, the number of vendors swells by another 2,000 as transient hawkers selling from outdoor stands join the ranks.
