About Lancaster

Lancaster, the "Red Rose City," was founded in 1729 and today blends traditional Pennsylvania Dutch charm with a rich, fascinating history. Though it was named in honor of Lancaster, England, the Pennsylvania town had little trouble deciding which side it was on when the fervor of revolution swept through the land in the 1770s. In fact, Lancaster was a key munitions producer for the Continentals during the War for Independence, and the city even served a turn as the fledging nation’s capital on September 27, 1777 when members of the Continental Congress regrouped here after fleeing Philadelphia. Nowadays, Lancaster acts as a doorway to the Pennsylvania Dutch Country, which promises a variety of unique destinations. In town is the nineteenth-century Central Market, the oldest publicly-owned farmer’s market in the country. Visitors amble past stands of regional products such as homemade sausage, bread-and-butter pickles, headcheese, fresh cut flowers, and handcrafted baskets. To learn more about the area, the Heritage Center Museum of Lancaster in Penn Square is a good place to start, and just a few minutes drive from town are popular attractions ranging from the historical (Rock Ford Plantation) to the presidential (James Buchanan’s Wheatland) to the cultural (People’s Place).
