In today’s episode of the Stephen Cooley Real Estate Show, Stephen and Amy Cassidy of York County Natural Gas talk about the 60th anniversary of providing gas to people. The York County Natural Gas has been around since the 50s. They started with a couple of hundred customers and now have 64,000.
There’ll be a special day on the first Saturday in December – if you’re a Saturday shopper, you can come by between 9am – 2pm and try the gas products for yourself. If you have a house for a long time, or you bought an old one, you might want to get a new contemporary fireplace which is very trendy this season.

STEPHEN: Hello, I’m Stephen Cooley and welcome to the Stephen Cooley Real Estate Show. I’m very excited to be at York County Natural Gas. I’m visiting with Amy who works here at York County Natural Gas. It’s a special day going on, what’s going on here today Amy.
AMY: It’s our 60th anniversary, so we’re having a big celebration. We invited our customers today to celebrate with us. We’re serving barbecue today.
STEPHEN: So providing gas to folks for 60 years.
AMY: That’s right, we’ve been around since the 50s and that’s what we’re doing today – it’s going back to the 50s. We have a lot classic cars over here, all from the 50s, inviting people to come and look at those.
STEPHEN: Absolutely, when I go out and sell houses now everybody’s got underground natural gas and in the last 60 years you’ve really been aggressive with getting natural gas to everyone.
AMY: We have, like I said we started in the 50s and we started by charter because product companies said come to try and start the gas and it was the capital cost to start leading infrastructure was too high so we’re started with legislation became an authority in ’54 and in 1957 we took our first deposits. We had a couple of hundred customers by 1960 and now we have 64,000.
STEPHEN: 64,000 customers, and just at my house I heat with gas, cook with gas, I’ve got gas lanterns, I’ve got a gas water heater
AMY: You’re one of our favorite customers.
STEPHEN: I’ve got a gas fireplace. It’s really covering every room in the house now with something that can be natural gas. And out here today you’ve got things setup that people can actually go by and see – some of the tracks with natural gas products.
AMY: We can, yes. We have a reno trail people can walk in and take a look at reno. We had a lunch & learn seminar earlier this week and we hosted over 60 people. So there’s a lot of interest in tank-less right now.
STEPHEN: I love coming to you because, we’re going into the fall/winter season. You’ve got fireplaces, people can actually come out here and play with the fireplaces and pick logs they like. You’ve got logs with different color flames, big flames, smaller flames, some put out more heat than other, so it’s really great to come in here. See, the only place I know with your showroom we come in and play with the logs and see the flames and see how they work. I love that.
AMY: Yes, and there’s so many new sets of logs. People who have houses for a long time may have an old set of logs and want a contemporary style, so we have that now too. We’re going into our fall sale season, so it’s a good time to come and shop for logs.
STEPHEN: So it’s a good time to come and shop for logs and you’ll be open a day in December which is a perfect day to come and buy Christmas gifts which can be a grill, it can be a fireplace. The showroom opens on Saturday for those Saturday shoppers.
AMY: We have one special Saturday – it’s the first Saturday in December that we’ll be open from 9am to 2pm.
STEPHEN: That’s amazing. So, we’re here having a great time celebrating your 60th anniversary been providing York County Natural Gas to folks for 50 years.
AMY: 60 years!
