Located southeast of Pennsylvania’s capital of Harrisburg, Lancaster began life as “Hickory Town.” It also had the distinction of being the U.S. Capital for a single day on September 27, 1777 when the Continental Congress fled Philadelphia after the town was seized by the British. The “red rose city” after the House of Lancaster, the town was also the capital of Pennsylvania from 1799 to 1812, before the seat was moved to Harrisburg.
Among its many attractions, Lancaster is home to Wheatland, the estate of James Buchanan, our fifteenth president. Visit Lancaster, and you’ll find everything from amusement parks and art galleries, to theatres, museums and a gallery of family entertainment venues. Downtown Lancaster offers 90+ restaurants, with a diverse menu from casual to elegant. And, of course, Lancaster County is home to Pennsylvania’s Amish community, an influence you’ll feel in this eclectic and charming town.
