Islamville Mayor Ramadan Sayeed Shakir says in recent weeks people have thrown crosses onto the property after holding a silent demonstration outside the gates. He says passersby have shouted racial and religious slurs for years.
A York man last year pleaded guilty to firing guns near Islamville and was fined $500.
