One of the most recognized villages in the Pequea Valley, Intercourse has a mysterious and refuted beginning. Some have said that the village takes its name from the early races that were held on Old Philadelphia Pike. Folks would say that they were "entering the race course," which became "enter course," which became Intercourse. Another version states that it is simply the old way of saying "to mix, to commune." Regardless, Intercourse and its surrounding towns--Leacock, Paradise, Salisbury, and the entire Pequea Valley--are extremely rich and quite influential in history. This book spotlights one of William Penn's original counties, the birthplace of the Conestoga wagon, and the rich heritage that accompanies each town. Enjoy this picturesque tour of the people and places found within the perimeters of this scenic nucleus of history.
