Welcome to Lancaster

Lancaster Pennsylvania, a city laid out by James Hamilton in 1734, is one of the oldest inland towns in the U.S. The city serves as seat of Lancaster County, famous as Amish Country for the unique culture maintained by the Swiss-German farmers who first arrived in the area in the early 18th century. The city center has many historical sites to explore including colonial churches, America’s oldest continuously running public farmers’ market, established in 1730, an Underground Railroad safe house, and craft beer establishments that draw on centuries of local brewing history. Touring the countryside offers a look at the fascinating Amish way of life, nearly unchanged for over 300 years.
