Lancaster County Area Information

Lancaster County is located in South Central Pennsylvania. It is bordered by the Susquehanna River to the west, Lebanon County to the north, Chester County to the east, and the state of Maryland to the south. Philadelphia is just a 1.5-hour drive to the east and Baltimore is a 1.5 drive south of Lancaster City.

Lancaster County History

Lancaster County’s ideal location amid fertile fields and along the Susquehanna River has always made it an attractive place for settlers. For thousands of years Native American groups such as the Shawnee, Susquehannock and Nanticoke occupied the area.

 

European people began to settle in Lancaster County in the early 1700s. They came mainly from Germany, France, England, Scotland and Wales and included many Amish people who were seeking religious freedom. Like the native groups before them, the Europeans found the land ideal for farming, fishing and hunting.

 

Lancaster County played an important part in the history of the Underground Railroad. The county sits just north of the Mason-Dixon line, so it was a key entry point for slaves escaping to the north. Many residents in the area opposed slavery, so they aided fugitive slaves seeking refuge. 

Lancaster County: Highlights & Attractions

Depending on your mood, you can spend your day visiting farms and quaint countryside markets, experiencing Amish culture, perusing art galleries and museums, visiting historic sites, or wining and dining in local restaurants and bars.

Some Amish communities offer tours of their farms, horse and buggy rides, and artisan products for sale at local Amish shops.
