Message from the President

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!


Dear LHS Members and Friends.

As we look forward to celebrating the Lancaster Historical Society’s 35th Anniversary in 2024, we would like to take this opportunity to thank the members and potential members for their continued financial support. If you have not mailed in your membership for the 2023-2024 season, please do so using the application found on the website,, or send a check payable to 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 will be facing changes for the safekeeping of our LHS collections. Our goal presently is to find a new permanent home similar to those enjoyed by many of our “Daughter Towns”. More information will be shared at our Annual Meeting in 2024.  Meanwhile, 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
