Riding to school on an Indian motorcycle

In this second column, I am speaking to Mr. Sterling Rothrock in Lehigh Township. Mr. Rothrock is one of the senior former employees of the Universal Atlas Cement Company. Born in 1921, he worked at the cement company and operated two farms in Lehigh Township.

The family moved to Kreidersville where he attended the Kreidersville school.

One of his favorite hangouts as a youth was the Warren Wolfe & Sons Indian Motorcycle Shop.
