Message from the President

Dear LHS Members and Friends.

Where has the time gone?  The Lancaster Historical Society (LHS) was incorporated in April, 1989, and, coming up in April, 2024 we will be celebrating no less than 35 years of success in providing programs and displays featuring our town’s unique and rich history. Through the years, we have met many challenges but members and friends have always stepped forward to encourage the Executive Board by renewal of memberships and making donations.

We thank all who significantly helped prepare the Hosmer Exhibit “Open House” last October.  It was a great success and very well attended.

We also wish to thank Timothy Kenny, our webmaster, for keeping information available and up-to-date online at on this site,

Please take time to “Save the Dates” for the first three programs of our 2023-2024 season, click here to see our upcoming calendar. The Executive Board, with the support of the Thayer  Memorial Library, has reserved meeting space on Thursday evenings for three of our programs.

Last but not least, please “stay tuned” for upcoming information regarding our 35th Anniversary Celebration in April, 2024.  Also, we will soon be offering a special “Limited Edition” anniversary wall calendar with “then and now” images of beautiful Lancaster.

In closing, remember that September is Membership Month, please remember that your continued financial support is much appreciated as we strive to keep the rich history of our “Mother Town” alive for long-time residents, newcomers and visitors alike.
