Prior to their removal in 1965 and 1967, Market Street in Perrysville and later Port Royal, was lined with Horse Chestnut (sometimes called "Buckeye") Trees. It is likely that the trees were planted when sidewalks and curbing were laid along the street and the roadway was paved.
Travelers on PA Route 75 (Market Street was part of Route 75) experienced the shade of the trees during the Spring, Summer and Fall months. When the leaves turned in color and the "buckeyes" fell, it is likely that non-residents envisioned the street as part of a quaint New England village.
Beginning in 1965 and culminating in 1967 the PA Department of Transportation removed the trees to aid parking and to enhance traffic flow on the Street.
