AMERICAN HOMESTEAD SUMMER

Message from the President

Dear LHS Members and Friends.

On Sunday, June 16. 2024, we successfully concluded the last program of our 2023-2024 season: Marquis de Lafayette: A Hero of the American Revolution. Thanks so much to all our members and friends who supported us by attending!  If you could not be there, we have posted some photos and related material for you to enjoy.  CLICK HERE.

Though we are still looking for a new “home”, at this point we are planning “stay in business” for some time to come.  To help us do this, your financial support would help so much!  No amount is too small or too large. Please do so by sending your check to our post office box at LHS, P.O. Box 244, Lancaster, MA 01523.

And, if you wish to become a member, an application form can be found here on our 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! Presently, our goal is to find a new permanent home for the “Society” 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!
