Historic Lancaster Walk & Talk

One of the most charming things about the City of Lancaster is the adaptive reuse of buildings all over town. High-end apartments now occupy an old tobacco warehouse; a collective of shops are housed in an old storage garage; the Visitors Center lives where City Hall once did.

Find this intriguing? Then join the Historic Preservation Trust of Lancaster County for a Downtown Architectural Walking Tour on Saturday, October 18.

Over a dozen sites in Lancaster City will be on the tour, from past industrial and commercial spaces to residences and breweries. Experience first-hand the benefits of saving historic properties for adaptive reuse, and find out what modern residences, offices and restaurants used to be.

Tours run from 10 am until 3 pm. Tickets are $18 for Preservation Trust members, $20 for non-members and $10 for children age 12 and under. A block of five tickets may be purchased for $75. Contact Joe Patterson at (717) 823-7556 or joepatterson@hptrust.org for registration.
