I was walking down Frederick Street next to the Sheppard Mansion one day when some bright colors in a window caught my eye. When I stopped to look and spotted the plaques on the house I was really baffled. It was the Fisher Place, a pre-Civil War building from 1846. Why did it have colorful Mexican gowns in the windows?
When I got back home I did a little research and found that the building had been donated to the Borough of Hanover in 1993 by Jane Fisher Sneddon with a stipulation that it be used to house local non-profits. It is currently occupied by “The Hispanic American Center of Hanover”.
