Historic Lancaster Walking Tour, Corp.
Established in 1976
Celebrating our 47th year!
We spent an engaging couple of hours walking through downtown Lancaster learning about Lancaster's rich history and marveling at the well-preserved architecture. There's an interesting tale or two to tell going back to colonial times including a lot of goings on during the Civil War. Lancaster played an important part in the Underground Railroad during the 19th century. It was even the nation's capitol for one day! Many of the public buildings, churches and private homes are still used and a well-informed guide can point them out.
We had the pleasure of participating in a city walking tour given by Mr. Jim Herrick (hope we got this gentleman's name right). He is very knowledgeable about the history of the city and surrounding area. He is personable.We enjoyed the Central Market immensely and had lunch there, and it is conveniently located near the tour's departure point Many Thanks
Mark makes a wonderful presentation. Interesting. Engaging. Informative. Fascinating to learn more on the history of Lancaster. Equally so the people & ideas originating across the location.
Look forward to joining in a future session – with friends.
