Hoofbeats sounded 226 years ago, as Gen. George Washington led his troops past the Black Horse Inn to menace the British at Germantown. Stagecoaches rattled past the Springfield Township, Montgomery County, tavern in the 1800s. The swish of cars followed in 1926. Through much of this time, voices and glasses were raised in the hotel's barroom. Fresh voices were raised Tuesday night when 60 people turned out at a planning commission meeting to hear a new developer's proposal.

For 39 years, the Community Ambulance Association of Ambler has sat safe and snug among the shade trees and cozy borough homes of North Main Street - a little too snug for some. Built in 1960 to provide emergency service to the borough, the ambulance company has since expanded its coverage area to all of Lower Gwynedd, most of Upper Dublin and half of Whitpain. But while its clientele has grown, the squad's one-story station at 150 N. Main St. has not. "It's kind of primitive, really," said John Coupe, president of the ambulance association.
