Hosmer: A Lancastrian Original See EXHIBITS.

 We also have available upon request our recently issued self-guided touring maps entitled “Twenty-two Sites of Early Settlement”.  See TOURSOur recent six- part series of Lancaster’s Thayer Family is now complete and is available to watch here anytime. See VIDEOS.

The split rock where Mary and her wounded young daughter Sarah spent their first night of captivity after the conflict in Lancaster during King Phillip’s War.

We still have a treasury of untold stories of both local and regional interest. Future programs are “in the works” and will be announced as they can be arranged post-pandemic.  Please stay tuned!

We will be sending out invitations to renew.  As always, we thank our loyal long-time members and we encourage anyone with interest to join us.  Just let us know. With YOUR help, we can continue our mission to encourage the appreciation of Lancaster’s rich and varied history for everyone.
