Message from the President

AMERICAN HOMESTEAD SUMMER

Dear LHS Members and Friends.

As we look forward to the Lancaster Historical Society’s last program of the 2023-2024 season on Sunday, June 16, 2024, we would like to thank our members and friends for their continued financial support. If you would like to donate, please do so by sending your check to our post office box listed below.  If you wish to become a member, an application form can be found on this website.  You can pay through PayPal or send your completed application along with a check payable to the LHS, P.O. Box 244, Lancaster, MA 01523.

Over the years, much time and energy has been invested in furthering our mission to preserve, protect and promote our heritage. “Mother Town” Lancaster is indeed rich! Sadly, due to recent and unforeseen circumstances, we are facing challenges for the safekeeping of our LHS collections. Presently, our goal is to find a new permanent home similar to those enjoyed by many of our “Daughter Towns”. If you have any suggestions, please let us know!

Best Wishes,

Heather Lennon, President
Joan Richards, Secretary
Linnea Servey, Treasurer
Ann Fuller, Member at Large

Watch for details of our next fundraiser.

The Lancaster Historical Society recently had the value of Phyllis Farnsworth’s appliqued quilt estimated by certified appraiser Vivien Sayre of Marshfield, MA.

  We were very happy with the results and will use this information when the quilt is made available as a fund-raiser. 

Stay tuned!

The beautiful quilt made by Phyllis Farnsworth (1925-2012) of Lancaster was given to us by her good friend, Mrs. Elizabeth Roy to be used as a fundraiser. Watch for details on how you may become the next owner of this very special heirloom quality treasure!
